The Embryology Project Kits provide an experiential learning opportunity for youth by providing materials needed to successfully hatch chicks. Groups and youth develop a personal connection to the food system through hands on learning. Youth learn life skills such as disease prevention, problem solving, keeping records, planning, and organizing. They can study the process of incubation, learn about the cycle of life, care for healthy and possibly unhealthy chicks, and work as a team to ensure the success of their project.

Notice: This toolkit is bulky and includes responsibility for live animals.
