We believe in providing quality science education for every child. Since molecular biology is particularly difficult to teach, we developed activities that are easy for teachers to implement in their classrooms to teach about DNA and proteins.
Instead of using live cells to turn DNA into proteins, BioBits uses a cell-free extract instead. That means we’ve pulled out all the essential cellular machinery out of the cells and combined them into our BioBits reaction. No cells – no stress! We also freeze-dry our reactions, so you don’t have to worry about storing your kit in specialized conditions.
Each BioBits pellet only costs pennies and doesn’t require expensive equipment.
No more scrambling before class to grow cells or try to get complex machines to work. BioBits simplifies molecular biology experiments so more time can be spent on teaching and learning!
Instead of trying to puzzle out the abstract diagrams in a textbook, the students get to set up their own experiments and see the processes happen before their eyes!
We welcome everyone to join our BioBits community! We envision developing an open-source community around the BioBits kits, allowing users to discuss and develop new ideas for lessons or even build new parts for future kits. Together, we hope to engage more students in the life sciences and biotechnology.
