The following is a preliminary list and price for Cornerstone's Cycle 3 Base Kit. Components and pricing will be finalized by the end of May.


Cornerstone's Cycle 3 Base Kit provides durable goods to pass from class to class plus consumable materials for ONE class of 8 students and 1 tutor. Scroll down for list of items.

NOTE: The Class Pack contains consumable materials for one class of 8 students and 1 tutor.


To determine how many Base Kits and 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 Class Packs. A larger community of 40 students with 2 groups doing science at the same time will need 2 Base Kits and 3 Class Packs.
