Function and Applications

Teach genetics more clearly and understandably with real plants! With Mendel in a Box, grow plants together in the classroom that have been previously bred and crossbred to perfectly mimic Mendelian inheritance rules. Observe the growth of the plants together in the classroom and analyse the segregation of the phenotypes together. In Mendel in a Box, all three of Mendel's rules are covered.

The experiments last approx. 6-12 weeks, depending on the season and sunlight. One box corresponds to one class set of material.
