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.
