- Available as a single kit with materials for 1 student or group
- Unassembled 10 pack for additional savings
- No additional equipment needed
This complete experiment setup contains all materials and does not require lab equipment. Students begin by using the “ABCDE” characteristics of skin cancer to determine that the mole should be biopsied. They analyze a simulated biopsy and determine that the mole is melanoma, a particularly dangerous type of skin cancer. They use materials provided to design and conduct an experiment to test one way to reduce outdoor ultraviolet (UV) light exposure. Finally using graphic cutouts to create a Skin Cancer and Sun Safety infographic.
