Provide a hands-on experience for students to compare conventional soybean seeds to genetically modified Roundup Ready® soybean seeds. This kit includes conventional soybean seeds, GM soybean seeds, and the testing materials to indicate which seed contains the protein responsible for making Roundup Ready® soybeans tolerant to the herbicide glyphosate.
The kit will include the following items:
- 20 conventional soybeans in a coin envelope
- 20 Genetically Modified "Roundup Ready"® soybeans in a coin envelope
- 2 QuickStix test strips
- 4 weighing boats
- 2 transfer pipettes
- 2 reaction vials
- Additional seeds (seeds to simulate “weeds” or unwanted plants)
Each kit includes the resources needed for one seed test experiment. Please order multiple kits if you plan individual or group experiments (e.g., 5 groups would need 5 kits).
This kit is designed to accompany the lesson The Science of a GMO found on the National Agricultural Literacy Curriculum Matrix.
GM Soybean Seed Kits can only ship to teachers or students in the United States!
