GM Soybean Seed

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 
  • 2 zip closure bags

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. Additional lesson plans associated with this kit can be found on the National Agricultural Literacy Curriculum Matrix.

Please Note: If you are not using this kit immediately, the contents of the kit need to be stored in a refrigerator. DO NOT place in the freezer. Please use this kit within 6 months.

GM Soybean Seed Kits can only ship to teachers or students in the United States!

To demystify the science concerning molecular biology and genetics consider conducting "hands-on" experiments with PCR tools.  The technique is used by scientists in agriculture, medicine, and criminal justice (to name a few). MiniPCR provides inexpensive hardware, software, and classroom tested curriculum resources for a deep dive into DNA. Other PCR machine options maybe found with a Google search.

    This kit was perfect for a teacher professional development workshop. Teachers were actively engaged in the learning and many of them indicated that they would use it in their classrooms.
