Bioplastics Kit™: Get started with biomaterials
About the Bioplastics Kit™
Discover a greener way to craft and create with the Bioplastics Kit™: Get started with biomaterials! This hands-on kit teaches an educational, renewable solution to reduce plastic waste and fight climate change. Learn the science and create a project that empowers you to be part of the solution. Change the world with Bioplastics Kit™!
You may have heard of “Bioplastics” already: plastic-like materials made from non-petroleum sources, such as plant and animal matter. But what exactly are the ingredients in bioplastics, and do these materials actually have the potential to replace regular plastics? In this hands-on, multi-part kit, you will learn about the material science behind bioplastics and how to make your own.
As the field of bioplastics grows, we want to empower learners like you with all the information you need to understand the promise and current limitations of these new materials in a responsible and fun way. After you have completed this kit, you will have the knowledge and tools to explore the many possibilities and applications of bioplastics on your own!
What will you learn?
What else is needed?
Cleaning and safety supplies are not included in the kit. Necessary safety and cleaning supplies are latex or nitrile gloves, and a chlorinated bleach cleaner or a 10% solution of chlorinated bleach in a spray bottle (you can make this by adding 9 parts water to 1 part bleach in a spray bottle). You can add a Mini Safety Set to your kit which includes gloves and a reusable plastic apron to protect your clothes.
For more information about safety, set up and clean up, you can have a look at the instruction manual for the experiment linked in the Ressources section below, and at the "Practicing safe science" page.
Storage & Shipping
