African American Scientist Series Kit
Featuring William Augustus Hinton
Investigating an Epidemic
William Augustus Hinton was an African American Bacteriologist and a Pathologist who was well respected in the field of Public Health. He was the First Black Professor in the history of Harvard University. His work in the feild of Immunology and Bacteriology are world reknown.
This new kit shows how an epidemic is spread and locates patient zero. It shows how a viral infection (like AIDS or flu) or a bacterial infection (like strep throat) can be transmitted through a population. This interactive student kit uses SAFE chemical procedures. Students can also learn how a Public Health Official like William Augustus Hinton might be able to prevent or halt the spread of and epidemic.
The Epidemic Kit might be the best lab you do this year and probably the most important!

In 1996 MacNan Biologicals set out on a mission to meld historical facts with scientific exploration focusing on the accomplishments of African American scientists. MacNan Biologicals, located in historic Birmingham, Alabama enlisted experts in the fields of science and education to prepare these kits. The representative scientists selected were chosen for the significant accomplishments they achieved in their particular fields of expertise. It is our hope that the Focus on African American Scientists Series will motivate students to seek a greater understanding of science and consider careers on the scientific frontier.
MacNan Biologicals has also partnered with the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute to conduct seminars to teach teachers how to bring science alive in the classroom. Please inquire about our workshops and group seminars for professional teacher training. Our professional sales staff is ready to assist you.
