The American Educational 2677 human endocrine system model activity set is used for study of the endocrine system’s structure and function. The model depicts seven endocrine glands in whole and magnified sections, with closely related organs, including the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands, and the pancreas, ovaries, and testes, for detailed examination. The 2677 is markable for demonstration purposes, and has an activity guide that contains background information, student activities, glossary, overhead color transparencies, reproducible black-line diagram master, and a key to model structures for instructional use. The model is made of durable vinyl, which resists oil, has low moisture absorption, and is non-conductive. The 2677 measures 24.0 x 18.0 inches (H x L). (H is the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; L is the horizontal distance from left to right.) The model is suitable for grades 3 to 12 and ages 8 to 18.
Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom and homeschool-based projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.
