Product Details

African American Scientist Series
Dr. Ernest Everett Just
Cell Membranes Classroom Kit
 
Dr. Ernest Everett Just was the first African American Scientist to receive to receive foundation support for research in a pure science like biology. An internationally acclaimed biologist, he studied the workings of life at the cellular level.
 
Cells are the basic building blocks of all living things. In this series of experiments, students will observe chemicals moving in and out of a cell by a process called diffusion. For this experiment human cells are too small so a large single cell - a hen's egg - will be used instead.
Materials are provided to accommodate a class of 24 students working in pairs.
The materials provided in this classroom kit include:
• Biography sheet for Dr. Ernest Everett Just
• 48 - 9oz plastic cups with lids,
• 12 - 12 inch plastic rulers
• 1 roll of string
• Procedural instructions
• Teaching tips for the instructor.
 
 Some materials will need to be provided locally:
• 1 gallon distilled vinegar
• 12 eggs (jumbo preferred)
• 1 gallon distilled water
• paper towels
• 3 quarts corn syrup
 
Best for grades 5-12. Suitable for home schoolers 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.
