Innovating Science chemistry kit is used to compare biological and physical methods of oil spill cleanup. Students apply a blend of oil-degrading microbes and hydrocarbon-encapsulating polymer to oil, and examine results and draw conclusions regarding the effectiveness of each approach. The kit has prepared stained vegetable oil for simulating crude oil to eliminate the hazards and disposal costs of using a real sample. For hands-on learning, the kit has materials for 15 groups of students, including an oil degrading microbe blend, simulated crude oil, nutrient solution, hydrocarbon encapsulating powder, plastic vials and cups, and cotton balls. The kit has a teacher's manual and student study guide copymasters for instructional use, and a safety data sheet (SDS) packet for product information and handling procedures. The kit is suitable for age 13 and older with adult supervision, and is not subject to Department of Transportation (DOT) shipping restrictions. Innovating Science products, manufactured by Aldon Corporation, include educational kits for the chemistry, life science, green chemistry, advanced placement chemistry, and forensic fields. Aldon Corporation was founded in 1964, and is headquartered in Avon, NY.What's in the Box?(1) oil-degrading microbe blend (15.0g)(1) simulated crude oil (250.0mL)(1) nutrient solution to make 1,000.0mL(1) hydrocarbon encapsulating powder (200.0g)(32) plastic vials(15) plastic cups(1) bag cotton ballsTeacher's manualStudent study guide copymastersSafety data sheet (MSDS) packet
