Available Educational Kits
The Educational Outreach team at HudsonAlpha works to continually create classroom modules that provide engaging experiences through which students can achieve a clearer understanding of genetics, genomics and biotechnology-related content. Our story began in 2007, when HudsonAlpha started a partnership with the Alabama State Department of Education to develop modules and activities for middle and high school students connected to state curriculum requirements in genetics. Today, these kits annually reach more than 86,000 students in Alabama and across our nation. Currently available kits explore chromosome behavior in cells, diagnose genetic disorders and use bioinformatics databases to reinforce DNA structure and function and the work continues.
Kits available for purchase through Carolina include:
Details about kit contents, costs and ordering instructions can be accessed on the Carolina Biological website.
Carolina Biological Partnership

Since the partnership began in 2013, HudsonAlpha’s kits have been distributed to 47 states across the nation and have impacted over 36,000 students in the year 2015 alone.
“The quality of the content, activities and materials that this dynamic and knowledgeable group produces is very much inline with Carolina’s commitment to provide educators the finest products and services to help all students understand science.”
