Desk Kits versions are available to complement our three most complex Board Kits—Macromolecules, Protein Synthesis, Cell Membrane, and Cells—for maximum engagement where it does the most good! You can introduce a concept using the Board Kit during your lecture, then put students to work in twos or threes with the desk-sized version of the same kit.

Each includes a worksheet that guides students through assembling various structures, enacting processes, and answering questions about the topic. In addition we offer the Kelp Forest Food Web Desk Kit to promote understanding of one of the richest of the ocean ecosystems.

Each Desk Kit comes in a vinyl envelope suitable for storage and consists of two solid 7 1/2″ by 12″ (8 1/2 ” by 11″ for Kelp Forest) sheets of colorful images, which must be cut out using regular scissors. Dry-erase markers may be used on this material and will erase.

$15 each for Macromolecules, Protein Synthesis, Cell Membrane, and Cells, with a 10% discount for 10 or more of the same title.

$12 for Kelp Forest Food Web, with a 10% discount for 10 or more of the same title.
