MATERIALS

see also SUPPLIERS

The following is a list of materials for each of the lessons. These are, for the most part, the same materials lists as in the lessons themselves. Having it all in one place allows you to see at a glance if you have or can get the materials necessary BEFORE you commit to learning about or applying a new lesson.

FOR SOFTWARE see HOW WE DID IT

Many of the lessons use the "Urchin Kit" which consists of the following:

NOTE: if possible use glassware that has never be exposed to soap or detergent as even the smallest amount can disrupt development.

 

CORE

GAMETES

FERTILIZATION

DEVELOPMENT

EXPERIMENTS

IDEAS FOR AN INCUBATOR FOR TEMPERATURE STUDIES AND CULTURING EMBRYOS

SPERM EXPERIMENTS

THE MICROSCOPE

SIZE UNDER THE MICROSCOPE

MIXING THE GENE POOL

BROODERS VS SPAWNERS

SIMPLE DILUTION

Spectrophotometer parts: (has the potential of being shared with the chemistry classes and used to measure other reactions like enzyme kinetics or bacteria/yeast growth)

SIMPLE DILUTION 2

SPERM DILUTION

DRAWING

EXTENDED RESEARCH

Look at individual topics. These ideas all interrelate and it would be hard here to give a good list of materials needed.
