The American Educational lung apparatus is for studying relaxation and contraction of human lungs. The apparatus has a half gallon, plastic bell jar with an open top and a rubber sheet for representing the chest cavity and diaphragm, and is available with one or two balloons attached to a Y connector for simulating the lungs. Lung movement is demonstrated by pulling the diaphragm downward to lower atmospheric pressure inside the chamber, which causes the balloons to expand; the balloons deflate when the diaphragm is released. The apparatus includes a lesson plan for instructional use. The product measures 8-1/4 x 8-1/4 x 8-1/4 inches (L x W x H) and weighs 1.3 lb. (L is length, the horizontal distance from left to right; W is width, the horizontal distance from front to back; H is height, 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.
