Whether you’re a new or experienced chemistry teacher, look to Carolina for your hands-on chemistry needs. Our kits are designed with your teaching goals in mind. Engage students with activities that allow them to explore science and engineering practices, master challenging concepts, think critically, and solve problems. Our unique chemistry kit lines help you tailor hands-on activities to your students’ learning needs and facilitate your planning and preparation.
Helps meet the College Board’s curriculum and lab requirements. Teach your lab as a guided activity or as an inquiry activity.
Supports the 5E learning cycle–engage, explore, explain, extend, and evaluate. Use the kits individually, as a multi-kit topic strand, or collectively as a series.
Looking for a more traditional lab? Each kit in the Carolina ChemKits® series focuses on a single chemistry topic, and you can complete the activities in 1 class period.
Check your performance anxiety at the door! Each demonstration works right the first time and includes enough materials to wow your students for at least 4 performances. These demonstrations are not just show-and-tell. Resources are provided to ensure students stay actively engaged in the demo.
Middle and early high school students apply chemistry knowledge in a classroom engineering and design competition. Based on the engineering practices of the Next Generation Science Standards*, these kits encourage team building and strengthen creative problem-solving skills while applying science concepts.
Carolina® Chemistry Topic Bundles
Need a complete solution for hands-on chemistry lessons? Each topic bundle includes a teacher demonstration to introduce a topic and 2 classroom kits to provide a thorough lab experience.
Explore a variety of topics from 3 broad content areas (Structure and Properties of Matter, Chemical and Nuclear Reactions, and Energy in Chemical Processes) with the chemistry kits in these 4 bundles. The kits were built from the ground up to engage students in scientific and engineering practices while applying core ideas and crosscutting concepts–experiences that are key to thriving with the NGSS and phenomena-based learning.
Spend less time preparing for labs–and have more time for doing them.
