Dino Pet Education Kit

Bring the Dino Pet into your classroom or kitchen to teach introductory science lessons in a unique and fun way!




The Dino Pet contains bioluminescent plankton and seawater. With a gentle shake at night and some easy daytime care, the Dino Pet will give off a blue glow in the dark. It’s a no-mess, no-fuss opportunity for students to get a close-up interaction with bioluminescence. The Dino Pet will live in your classroom during the day, and travel home with students for observation during nights and weekends.
