Science, Discovery and Exploration

Kids come to us filled with questions... but without instruction manuals for the answers! Sometimes it's nice to let them figure it out themselves. Science experiments help them delve deep into their questions and come back out knowing more than they ever thought possible. (And certainly more than we ever could have told them!)

Learn about renewable resources while you build a wind-powered generator to energize your electric vehicle and charge your rechargeable batteries!

The wind spins the turbine, which turns an electric generator, which in turn charges your rechargeable AA batteries (not included). You can then use those wind-charged batteries to power the model vehicles you build. The six models include a glider, sail car, jet car, tractor, race car, or tricycle.

This kit includes two styles of wind turbine blades and a gearbox with three different gear ratios for experiments. You can adjust the angle and number of wind turbine blades to make best use of the wind, to make the LED light up brightly, and to charge the rechargeable battery as fast as possible.

A great gift for young scientists who are ready for a hands-on way of learning about wind energy!

Explore this amazing, free source of renewable energy and store the electricity you generate for use in practical applications!

Requires 1 rechargable AA battery (not included.)

This complete, deluxe kit has so much to experiement with for young scientists interested in crystals and geodes!

Measure how the crystallization of solids out of a solution and the dissolution of crystals back into solution, affect the temperature of the solution. Learn about the energy of crystallization! Investigate solutions, crystallization, and the chemistry of crystal growing. Learn about the structures and geometries of different crystal shapes.

Experiment with four chemically different crystals each with different properties, including potassium alum crystals that form regular octahedrons, rapidly growing sodium sulfate crystals, long needle-shaped sodium acetate crystals as well as plaster which is made from gypsum crystals. Mold fun plaster shapes, including stars, lightning bolts, dolphins, and pyramids, and grow layers of crystals on them! Use dyes to form colored crystals, and mix the dyes to grow a rainbow of custom coloured crystals.

Once youu have created some crystals you can display your crystal creations in the included clear treasure chest with a locking lid!

Mold your own geode — a hollow rock with crystals growing inside — and create a beautiful crystal cavern within. Experiment with growing crystals rapidly and slowly, and observe how that affects the crystal structures. See if you can grow one giant crystal and many small crystals on the surface of a rock!

A full-colour, 32-page experiment manual guides your experiments in crystal chemistry and Earth science.

See what kinds of things your magnets will pick up! Try paper clips, coins, keys, pins, nails, pens or aluminum foil. Which of these items are attracted to your magnets? Whatever is attracted to your magnets probably contains iron. The N and S on the ends of the horseshoe magnets stand for North Pole and South Pole. Every magnet has at least two poles, a North and a South. Experiment with your other magnets by holding them up to each end of the horseshoe magnets. Opposite poles attract or pull together. Like poles repel or push apart. Learn so much about magnets with this 24-piece kit!
