Teach the techniques and ethics of modern reproduction with this set!

With this model your students will make paper models of egg and sperm. By moving haploid nuclei they will see how normal fertilisation takes place, and the maternal source of mitochondria.

Reproductive technology is also addressed by modeling in vitro fertilisation (IVF), the controversial new mitochondrial donation (three-parent babies) and reproductive cloning (as used for Dolly the sheep).
