UTEX offers teaching kits for use in classrooms and for individual science projects. Each kit includes a selection of algae that can be used to explore a variety of scientific questions. UTEX kits do not come with a specific recipe for doing a project. Rather, they represent experimental material that can be used to address questions that may lead to unique or unexpected results. Suggestions for research projects are described for each kit.
