Give a school the gift of biotechnology. We'll send any school you choose a Cloning a Fluorescent Gene kit, and let the school borrow a PCR machine and full set of pipettes from us, so that they don't need any special equipment! When the school does the kit, we'll assemble the bio-art that the students make into a special "Thank You" collage and send you a personalized poster. Furthermore, backers above this level will be acknowledged on the inside cover of the Lab Manual, along with the authors.

Same as $1000, but we throw in a fully configured Netbook computer to run the Thermotyp, and the school gets a Cloning Fluorescent Gene kit, and we let them use our pipettes so that each student can experience biotechnology.
