Following consultation with life science researchers and educators, and drawing on our and our partners' collective experience as published researchers and university lecturers, we present a range of educational packages for teaching and experiential learning in life sciences / biology in schools and universities. We currently offer the following educational tools:
Affordable, easy to set up and require minimal maintenance, our teaching kits provide a pragmatic and immersive laboratory learning experience - adaptable to a wide range of educational levels. Our teaching kits stimulate interest in STEM subjects and encourage independent experimentation and thinking.
The Q-teach Animal Respirometry Packages are designed for teaching and hands-on experience on the principles of insect, small mammal and fish respirometry (CO2, optional O2) placed in flow-through chambers. Two different animal biology teaching kits are available - with or without an O2 analyser and with different measuring chambers. Animals are not harmed during the short term measurements!
The Q-teach Photosynthesis Package is designed for teaching and hands-on experience on the principles of photosynthesis, respiration, and transpiration in plant leaves placed in a flow-through chamber.
The VSI-teach belowground ecology kit is designed to introduce root and soil ecology topics to a wider audience - making the 'hidden half' of ecosystems visible and accessible. The kit consists of rhizoboxes, stands and a manual on how to carry out simple but effective experiments with plants and soil. Just add soil, seeds and water! Details coming soon!
