The 3B Scientific T21009 monocotyledonous plant model is used to study the wheat grass (Triticum aestivum), a member of the Gamineae family. The T21009 is enlarged 15X life size for display, and dissembles into five parts to provide effective demonstration. The model has individual ears that separate to provide a detailed view of the immature stamen and pistil. The T21009 is made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic, which is corrosion resistant, lightweight, and has high strength. PVC resists reactions with acids, gasoline, alcohol, and hydrocarbons. Natural sciences models are typically used as educational aids in medical and scientific classrooms and office settings.
The model measures 20.5 inches/52cm in height (H), which is the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point.)
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.
3B Scientific manufactures anatomical models, simulators, charts, and other training materials for use in scientific, medical, and patient education. Founded in 1948 and headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, 3B Scientific meets ISO 9001: 2008 standards.
