KIT: This plant cell model shows details of cell wall and inner details of cell. The nucleus is separated and defined in a 3-D likeness, cut section of chloroplast is shown. Mounted on a base. Supplied with English key card.
GMOs - University of Calgary
Genetically Modified Organisms can be difficult to understand. These laboratory-modified plants and animals are a controversial part of the agricultural industry—and a person’s diet.
KIT: Photosynthesis and cellular respiration are the fundamental processes in the flow of energy and the cycling of matter. Students are given the task of building models of water and carbon dioxide molecules, which are converted into glucose and oxygen molecules at the giant chloroplast. The glucose and oxygen molecules then move to the mitochondria where the students reassemble them into carbon dioxide and water molecules, generating ATP.
DVD: teaches students that the human body is really one large system comprised of many smaller systems. Made up of cells, tissues and organs, each body system has its own specialized job. However, each system must still interact with the others to get its job done.

"From a stalk of corn to a pine tree, every plant is made of plant cells. What material is in these cells? How do they hold together? How do growers use their knowledge of cell growth to create new plants? What's next in plant science? You can see the hidden secrets of cell life in the fascinating photos, diagrams, and text…
KIT: Liven up your whiteboards and get students to interact with these giant, colorful magnets! Young students explore cell structures through hands-on investigation, while older students reinforce their understanding of cells.
