Description

Great for students of any age! The Brain Mold is useful in anatomy, biology, and injury prevention classes -- even just for fun on Halloween! It can be made to have the same color, size, mass, and consistency of a human brain. For a super-realistic look, paint inside the ridges with red food coloring. Instructions included. (Gelatin not included.) 7.5" x 9" x 4".

REINFORCE THE IMPORTANCE OF HELMETS. Place the gelatin brain mold in a bike helmet and let it drop to the floor. Do it again without the helmet. This is your brain with a helmet and this is your brain without one! Any questions?

I used this as a demonstration with the suggestions on the included sheet. The kids loved it and enjoyed "eating brain"

What a great teaching tool... a jello brain mold. We use it for safety demos for using helmets! Use Cooking spray before adding jello so the brain comes out easier.

use of brain mold

Although we have not used this specific mold, we use a similar product and find that if you wipe the mold lightly with cooking oil prior to filling it with jello that it is very easy to remove the form. Also, you can add some unflavored gelatin to the mixture to increase the stiffness of the form without effecting the flavor. In terms of lesson ideas, we fill the mold half way with jello and let it gel,then put in jelly beans in various brain regions and fill the rest of the way with jello. Be sure the second batch of jello is not too hot or it will dissolve the jelly beans. Students then do brain surgery to remove slices of brains containing the jelly bean tumors and must say what types of problems might occur if there was a tumor in that particular brain region.

This mold is great. follow instructions and you have a real looking brain to demo for the classes when teaching nervous system. keep eye out for jello sales and buy 6 boxes of peach when they do.

Sometimes the gelatin gets stuck in the nooks and crevices, but overall a great product. Good for showing the kids how much their brain weighs. Then I drop one on the floor without a helmet, and I place the other in a helmet and drop it. Really gets the message across as to the protection afforded by wearing a helmet!
