NOTICE:

 Due to the recent extreme temperatures in the Pacific Northwest and greatly increased demand this year, we are experiencing a disruption in our owl pellet supply. Orders will be shipped immediately without owl pellets and the next batch of pellets will be sent out September 10.

Cornerstone's Cycle 1 Base Kit provides durable goods to pass from class to class PLUS consumable materials for one class of 8 students and 1 tutor. See list of items below. 

 

NOTE: The Cycle 1 Consumables Class Pack ($76.50 each) contains consumable materials for one class of 8 students and 1 tutor.

 

 

We recommend purchasing one Base Kit for each class that will be conducting experiments at the same time in the same room. So if there are two or three classes working simultaneously, you will need to purchase two or three Base Kits. If your classes are coming in one-at-a-time, then one Base Kit is all you need, with one Consumable Class Pack for each additional class.

 

Each classroom should be equipped with a Base Pack, and the Consumables Class Pack will replenish materials used during the first class time. To determine how many Base Kits and Consumable Class Packs your community needs, use the following formula:
 

# science classes happening simultaneously =  # base kits

# additional classes doing science =  # class packs


For example, a small community of 24 students who can all share the durable materials will need 1 Base Kit and 2 Consumable Class Packs. A larger community of 40 students with 2 groups doing science at the same time will need 2 Base Kits and 3 Consumable Class Packs.
