Molecular model making kits using straws and connectors.
Molecular models can be quickly and easily made from these straw and connector type kits. Like Molymod kits, they can be purchased as sets of a number of components which allows pupils to make a range of structures. They are also available as single parts (to replace lost pieces or to make a custom structure) and also in kit form where the pack has enough parts to make a specific structure.
Many lab suppliers stock these economical kits and parts. They can also be purchased direct from the manufacturer www.cochranes.co.uk.
