It's also an expression of an individual's personal genetic makeup for all to appreciate. Foster your students' curiosity and wonder with this one-of-a-kind experience. Kit includes enough materials to create 1 DNA Keepsake, teacher's manual, student guide, and 1-year access to digital resources. Note: This kit requires students to use samples of their own saliva.
