The ETA hand2mind 71027 set of 12 250mL borosilicate glass beakers has a graduated metric double-scale, pour spout, and marking area, and is used in education, chemistry, research, and life science applications. These beakers are heat resistant to 230 degrees C, and have uniform wall thickness that provides a balance between thermal shock resistance and mechanical strength. Borosilicate glass has a low coefficient of thermal expansion and is resistant to thermal stress.
Beakers are containers used by chemists, researchers, and educators to measure, mix, analyze, transport, and heat substances in a variety of laboratory, educational, and life science applications. Beakers are commonly made of glass such as borosilicate, and can also be made of stainless steel, or plastic materials such as polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), polypropylene, or polyethylene. Material types are chosen for their chemical, heat, and corrosion resistance, and for their surface finish, clarity, and non-contaminating abilities. Beaker forms commonly include Griffin (low overall height), Berzelius (a high form), or a shallow and wide structure, which is used for liquid crystalization. A beaker's outer diameter (OD) measurement does not include the rim. Beakers can meet ASTM E-960 specifications for classification, design, capacity and dimensions, and markings.
Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom 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.
ETA hand2mind develops educational and supplemental materials for teaching math, science, reading/language arts for pre-kindergarten through grade 12 students. The company, founded in 1968, is headquartered in Vernon Hills, IL.
