Alternatives to DIVE Lab Kits

Designed to prepare students for college lab classes, the DIVE Lab Kits include advanced equipment and supplies that can be cost prohibitive. For more economical alternatives, see the options below.

IS THE STUDENT REQUIRED TO DO HANDS-ON LABS?
While it is beneficial, doing the labs hands-on is not required. In fact, DIVE video labs were designed so that watching the video lab and completing the lab activity pages provides an excellent college preparatory lab education that can be listed on your student's transcript as a lab science credit.

LAB KIT IS OUT OF STOCK. If NWP is out of stock there are several options:

  • Purchase the DIVE Lab Kit from Christianbook.
  • Build your own lab kit by using the DIVE Lab Instructions and the Supply list on Nature's Workshop Plus to purchase the items from Home Science Tools. For help, please contact Home Science Tools directly.
  • Purchase an Apologia Lab Kit: Applicable only to DIVE Biology & Chemistry For details see "Apologia Lab Kit" below.
  • Purchase a MicroChem Kit: Only for DIVE Chemistry See “MicroChem” option below.

ECONOMICAL ALTERNATIVES

  • Build Your Own Kit with fewer Labs Nature's Workshop Plus sells the official DIVE Science Lab Kit with supplies to complete almost every lab. However, they also sell the individual components so you can do a few of the labs. For example, if using DIVE Biology, you could purchase only the dissection materials. To view the supplies needed for each lab, see the DIVE Lab Instructions.
  • Purchase an Apologia Lab Kit: Applicable only to DIVE Biology & Chemistry While DIVE Science labs include equipment and instruments used in college labs, Apologia uses equipment that is more economical. Therefore, the Apologia labs will not match the DIVE labs. However, If the student completes the DIVE video lab and lab activity pages, the Apologia Lab Kit can be used as a supplement to provide a hands-on lab at a more economical price. The Apologia Lab kits can also be purchased at Nature's Workshop Plus. See Lab Kits in this article: How to use DIVE & Apologia
  • Purchase a MicroChem Kit: Only for DIVE Chemistry These Labs do not match the DIVE labs. However, if the student completes the DIVE video lab and lab activity pages as instructed in the course, this kit can be used as a supplement to provide a hands-on lab at a more economical price.
