Many people have started getting their experiment kits for The GMO Corn Experiment. Let us know when you’ve gotten yours by Tweeting @franknfoode or using #GMOexperiment, or share in the comments below!

If you already ordered an experiment kit – When you’ve received your experiment kit, do not start the experiment before you read the entire protocol! Visit GMOexperiment.com to register and enter your observations. We’ve had a few folks contact us asking where the ear numbers are. As you can see in this photo, each ear comes in its own bag with a barcode label – that label has the ear number. Be careful to not mix up the ears!

If you haven’t yet ordered an experiment kit, go to The GMO Corn Experiment Signup. Consider making a donation of $25 or more for a kit. We are also making a limited number of kits available to teachers and kids for free, thanks to the generous donations of others. There are still some kits available, so sign up today!
