discover the award-winning Biology Minilab for ages 12+
All-in-one kits come with software, hardware, and wetware needed to do genetic engineering simply and safely
Prepare with the Free Virtual Bioengineer™
Thousands of students and at-home learners have used the Virtual Bioengineer™ to learn and practice genetic engineering prior to hands-on experiments. Free, quick, and at the end of the journey, students receive a certificate they can print and proudly display on the fridge.
Grab your laptop and try it now - can be done in 10-20 minutes!
Engineer and grow microorganisms using the dna playground™
Fits on your desktop! The DNA Playground is the first biology lab equipment designed and built for students and at-home learners aged 12 and up. Lab equipment no longer has to be large, expensive, complex, nor daunting for beginners.
Engineer-it Kits™ are all of the "wet" ingredients needed
Engineer-it Kits are designed for students, makers, and teachers and include all the "wetware" ingredients needed to do hands-on genetic engineering!
No need for pipets, tips, or tubes - everything you need is included in the kits. Group kits contain enough material for 16 experiments—double what other kit companies offer.
You can do an Engineer-it kit without a DNA Playground, but a DNA Playground makes it more fun and simple!

It worked like a charm. Clever design, very user-friendly! My 15-year-old son has done 2 separate gene-editing experiments, both with great results!
No more separate little heating and then looking for ice and then for very small experiments the culturing can be done one or two petri dishes at a time. Great design and I am very happy I purchased it. Julie has her finger on the pulse of small lab requirements
