The introduction to scientific questions is important from an early age and should be introduced step by step to future scientists at pre-school age. You may think that this is totally overdone and a young mind is overwhelmed with such requests? – We believe that a healthy amount in an age-appropriate performance will generate interest in nature, scientific and technical understanding.
Variety in everyday school life is also important. Many students have problems imagining what they have learned if they are only presented with frontal teaching and from books. Negative experiences in everyday school life lead to students losing interest in the subject. Therefore, a varied form of teaching is required, where small experiments have to be shown or worked out by the students themselves, especially in science subjects like biology, physics and chemistry. We must not forget that today’s students will also be our future scientists who will be engaged in the search for medicines for serious diseases and solutions to environmental problems, alternatives for the food supply of the world population. This is why we have to open the young mind to the many possibilities and fascinating topics at an early age.
School lessons with a difference!
How to bring science into the classroom?
Many schools struggle with tight budgets and therefore cannot afford large laboratory instruments. But not every purchase has to be expensive to achieve the desired effect. HANNA has put together a practical laboratory in rucksack format for this case. Thus, even a class trip to the countryside can become an exciting lesson. The backpack labs contain all the equipment and reagents necessary for the measurements.
HANNA´s Backpack Labs
For a reasonable price, you will receive a comprehensive set to introduce your students to topics such as water quality, soil testing and saltwater analysis.
Working together – strengthening team skills
Science also means being able to work together. When dealing with scientific issues, the team spirit and the ability to work together is improved.
Complete testing setup
All required materials are included with the test kit. You get everything you need to perform a variety of tests.
Replacement reagents available
There is no need to buy a new kit when reagents are exhausted. The reagents and buffers for each parameter can be ordered individually.
Comprehensive educational material
The lesson plan and components are tied together by a comprehensive teacher’s manual that includes information about each parameter, classroom activities designed to introduce students to each parameter, and detailed field-testing procedures.
Our Backpack labs offer a wide range of possibilities to make your lessons more exciting:
- Backpack Lab Water Quality Educational Test Kit – HI3817BP
Tests for ten important water quality parameters
Classrooms can gain an extensive understanding of water quality through measurement of these ten parameters:
Acidity, alkalinity, carbon dioxide, dissolved oxygen, hardness, nitrate, phosphate, pH, EC, and TDS.
- Backpack Lab Soil Quality Educational Test Kit – HI3896BP
Tests for seven important soil quality parameters
Classrooms can gain an extensive understanding of soil quality through measurement of these seven parameters:
Nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, pH, EC, TDS, and temperature.
- Backpack Lab Marine Science Educational Test Kit – HI3899BP
Tests for 15 important marine science parameters
Classrooms can gain an extensive understanding of marine science through measurement of these fifteen parameters:
Acidity, alkalinity, ammonia, carbon dioxide, dissolved oxygen, nitrite, nitrate, phosphate, salinity, specific gravity, turbidity, pH, EC, TDS, and temperature.
The study prepares the way for a scientific career
The greed for education must not be alleviated by lack of equipment!
Public universities are often faced with a large number of students and limited laboratory space. In addition, the devices used are unfortunately often very old and cannot be compared with the current standard in science. How can we train the scientists of tomorrow with obsolete equipment? Hanna instruments is therefore making every effort to offer special conditions for the education sector so that education is not neglected here either.
Our devices work quickly and reliably. They are easy to handle and show the students that we have long arrived in the technical future and that litmus paper is not the only way to measure pH! Prepare your students for the challenging activities of science, production, farming, winemaking, quality control and so many others. Provide them with stable knowledge to carry out their research and control work quickly and reliably.
We offer a wide range of measurement devices to cover different budgets:
Not only pH but also conductivity, redox potential, spectrophotometry and photometry, titrations, turbidity and sugar content can be measured with HANNA’s instruments. On our homepage you will find the right product for many parameters.
Or contact your local office to discuss your requirements with trained HANNA personnel. Our colleagues will be pleased to find different possibilities for your application area.
The balancing act between meaningful measurement results and financing of research activities
Scientific questions often require special approaches in order to obtain the desired measuring points well and accurately. Hanna Instruments has not only a wide range of multi and single parameter measuring instruments for scientific use but also the possibility to develop individual solutions and measuring techniques together with you along your required application. Just think of the possibility of permanently monitoring the pH, EC or redox value in a fully automated system.
