We have partnered with several schools to provide science kits. There are new products for Johns Hopkins' CTY and Alpha Omega Academy. If you need kits for Johns Hopkins's CTY, Alpha Omega Academy, Western Christian Academy, or Southeast Academy, please see the links under the products section. Please call us if you need to order a kit for an unlisted school. READ MORE


"The home labs from Quality Science Labs are just excellent. These people really know what they are doing! If you are teaching upper level science to your own children or to a small classroom, these are the kits you have been looking for. These are hard to find gems and we highly recommend them!"

We have designed the MicroChem Kit in order to make teaching and preparation very convenient. This chemistry lab course is based on the Microscale method which uses about 1/100th of the chemicals a typical lab would consume. The chemical reagents are supplied in dropper bottles that are ready-to-go and do not require any mixing or further preparation. Dropping bottles facilitate the Microscale method, simplify classroom management, and help students stay organized and avoid spills, errors and inconsistencies. There are no concentrated acids or bases in the kit. The equipment provided is mostly plastic which reduces breakage.
The standard MicroChem Kit includes a 119 page manual which explains each experiment covering the following:
- Goals
The goals section outlines the major learning areas of the experiment.
- Background
The background would be equivalent to a short lecture on the theory of the experiment.
- Materials and Equipment
Get the equipment out of the kit and you are good to go. Any items not included in the kit like ice, sugar, hot water, etc. are also mentioned in this area, as well as at the beginning of each experiment.
- Procedure
Just follow the step by step procedure to do the experiment. Instructions are clearly explained making it easy for students, homeschool parents, and teachers/instructors.
- Results
Students answer questions in the results area. This gives students a better understanding as well as a record of their completion.
The MicroChem Kit contains sufficient materials to perform every experiment five times with all that's needed except a few commonly available items. It is intended as full year of labs designed to make teaching and preparation very convenient for the instructor. Use with adult supervision. Ages 14 & up.
