Biology Lab

Explore rocks, skin, insects and sand using the mini microscope. Learn where the plants store the food they make by using starch test.

This course contains 6 activities you can do with the following materials:

Mini microscope, petri dish, iodine bottle and aluminum foil

Use these materials to explore rocks, skin, insects and sand using the mini microscope. Learn where the plants store the food they make by using starch test.

Our videos are created to include questions, and give you time to pause the video and explore on your own. Our goal is not just to help you do the activity, but to explore and extend it. That’s why we call each one an expedition. It’s an adventure into something new.

You can choose to find these materials on your own, or go through the course with a LAB IN A BOX here. Our boxes come with a special voucher code that lets you take this course for free.

If you are looking for a gift, or a short set of activities for an fun and enriching science activity, this set is perfect for you.
