African American Scientist Series Kit
Featuring Dr. Flemmie Pansy Kittrell
Separating Metallic Iron From Cereal Classroom Kit
How is Iron used in the human body?
What foods are good sources of Iron?
What diseases are caused by too much or too little iron?
These are the types of questions that nutritionists study. Dr. Flemmie Pansy Kittrell, an African American woman, earned a Ph.D. in nutrition in 1938. Her research focused on the nutritional requirements of adults and children. She was especially concerned with improving nutrition among low income families around the world.
The separating and comparing of metallic iron contents from various cereals would be important to nutritionists such as Dr. Kittrell. This fun and fascinating experiment comes complete with everything (except cereals) and includes teaching tips for the instructor as well as detailed instructions for conducting the exercise.
Kids love this one! Suitable for grades 5-10. Great for home schools too.

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.
