About EBPI's High School Biotechnology Kits

EBPI is an active participant in the process of developing relevant and real-world applied products & services to assist students to acquire the key skills and attributes necessary to succeed in the 21st century economy. Our high school biotechnology kits will provide students with a rewarding and dynamic experience to understand the relationship and interaction between the natural and human-centric worlds. EBPI’s high school biotechnology kits are ideal for applying different scientific concepts, as well as styles of learning (i.e. visual, verbal, and kinesthetic).


Our program will also help students learn about the key goals of science which are:

Program Objectives
EBPI supports and advocates support for collaborative research and multidisciplinary relationships between students, educators, scientists, academic institutions, and the community through the convergence of Environmental Education, Science Education, and Citizen Science.

It provides students with specific learning goals designed to develop skills in identifying patterns and understanding processes.  Our kits teach students about toxicology and how it affects the environment in relation to the water we drink, the soil which we grow our food, the air that we breathe, and chemical-based substances that we use on a daily basis.  This will help students understand the implications of what we inhale, ingest, and touch.  The rise in concern about environmental health clearly demonstrates the need to develop methods to monitor and test our environment to ensure it is safe for our communities. We have students debate how we develop methods that will minimize the impact of chemicals, pollutants, and toxins on ourselves as well as our environment. We want students to feel confident about their ability to engage in discussions, areas of research, or professions that interest them. Our high school biotechnology kits introduces students to the fields of biotechnology, toxicology, and environmental studies from the use of our products and services to measure and monitor toxicity, genotoxicity, or mutagenicity levels in their local or regional environment. 


Our program enphasize the following learning goals:

Learning Goal 1: Applying and using the appropriate terminology, concepts, ideas, and themes related to environmental toxicology and the high school biotechnology kits.

Learning Goal 2: Conducting inquiries by selecting the appropriate instruments and materials as well as following the methods, techniques, and procedures for each study.

Learning Goal 3: Applying safe lab and/or field practices and procedures, handling and storing lab equipment, as well as using appropriate personal protection.

Learning Goal 4: Ability to compile, verify the accuracy, interpret, analyze, and communicate the results collected from various studies and experiments using the appropriate significant figures and units of measurement.

Learning Goal 5: Describing and studying the careers related to environmental toxicology including academic studies, research, studying the morals and ethics, and describing the contributions to the field.

Learning Goal 6: Evaluating the importance of quantitative and qualitative analysis by conducting a computer simulated data study to assess and monitor water, soil, or air toxicity levels and its importance.

Learning Goal 7: Identifying and studying the pollutants and environmental contaminants that can affect human health through inhalation, ingestion, and absorption.

Learning Goal 8: Learning about the use and impact of chemicals in the home and studying the effects of chemicals (i.e. mutagens) as well as evaluating the risks to the environment and human health of commonly used chemical substances by conducting an inquiry using one of our high school biotechnology kits.

Learning Goal 9: Studying the properties of water and its uses as a solvent by conducting an investigation, inquiry, and/or field study to determine toxicity concentration of pollutants in the water system and its effect on the environment using one of our high school biotechnology kits.

Learning Goal 10: Planning and conducting an inquiry to identify the basic components of soil, as well as using our high school biotechnology kit to determine toxicity levels in soil and its effects on the environment.

Learning Goal 11: Conducting a simulated study of the effects of toxicity or mutagenicity on the environment.


With our high school biotechnology kits, Students will not only be able to gain valuable experience in the fundamentals of science, but will be able to learn, apply, and develop the following essential skills:

Key Skills 2 


Our program will help students understand how toxicology affects their environment through the following Program Streams:

Testing Water




Testing Water Testing Soil Testing Chemicals  Simulated Testing

Each Program Stream contains a Site Sample Study (applicable to certain High School Biotechnology Kits) and a Lab Experiment that students will submit for your evaluation:

Site Sample Study High School Classroom
Lab Experiment Tab3

We have Learning Tasks to supplement the use of our High School Biotechnology Kits:

Before ordering one of our kits, it is strongly recommended that you go over following checklist to ensure you have the best experience:

1)  Time Allocation:  The time to complete the lab experiment varies between 75 minutes to 225 minutes along with an optional field trip.  Please determine the amount of time you have before you move forward.  Check out the kit's site pages where it shows the timelines. 

2)  Choose a Program Stream:  Review our Program Stream and select what you and/or your class wish to study further.  This will narrow down the selection of which High School Biotechnology kit(s) you can use.

3)  Using our Supplementary Learning Tasks:  These learning tasks will help reinforce what you will be learning while using one or more of our High School Biotechnology kits.  

4)  Understanding the Safety Protocols:  Our Safety protocols were created for the protection of students and yourself.  Review the protocols of the kit(s) you wish to use and make sure that your school board or administrator will be ok with the use of one of our kits.  Each school board has their own policies when it comes to the use of our kits.

5)  Equipment and Supplies:  Ensure that you have the correct equipment and supples to conduct the lab experiment.  EBPI has supplies and equipment that you can order from if you need to.  Visit this link for more details.

6)  Select your Kit(s):  Each of our High School Biotechnology kits have a specific purpose but some of the kits complement one another.  Ensure you know the number of kits you need for your class.  Please review our kit's webpages for further details.  Feel free to contact us as well if you have any questions or concerns.

7)  Conducting a Site Sample Study:  Depending on which of the kit(s) you select, you are able to also conduct a site sample study.  This will depend on your geographic location and availability of sites.  This portion of the study is optional and you can select your own samples to provide to the students on the day of the lab.

Once you completed the checklist above, you will be all set to conduct a Site Sample Study (if applicable) and the Lab Experiment using one of our High School Biotechnology kits.  Feel free to contact us if there are any further questions or concerns.  For further shipping, storage, & handling inquiries, please review the Safety Protocols and Questions & Answers.
