We know that the nervous system controls many of the body's functions, but there is another form of control - a chemical system of regulation called the endocrine system. The endocrine system is a self-regulating system, full of checks and balances. No single gland is independent of the rest - they all work together. This set introduces students to the players in this system explaining what they are and what they do.
Introduce junior and senior high school students to the world of microscopy with inexpensive, unbreakable microslides. Microslides consist of a strip of film with eight photomicrographs, each reproduced exactly as you would see them through a professional microscope under ideal conditions. You can supply all your students with their own microslides. A detailed text folder is included. Viewers are available separately.
