Easy Science Projects
Science is happening all around us everyday. At our stores, we host Science Parties to excite and educate children and adults about science and technology…
CLEAN WATER SCIENCE Green Science kits go environmental, for fun and edification. You pick from Solar Science, which lets you make your own little solar oven and water heater or Clean Water Science, which includes tabletop experiments in water filtration, desalinization, basic distillation and solar pasteurization. You get Instructions, plus a plethora of parts. You add a few household items. From KidzLabs® Fun Science Projects.
OSCILLATING REACTION CHEMISTRY KIT Stop going around in circles and order this excellent chemistry kit with (6) different experiments (it would be silly to have 6 of the same experiment) based on the Briggs-Rauscher oscillating reaction. Comes with a starch solution, sodium iodate, malonic acid, sulfamic acid, manganese sulfate, sodium thiosulfate, mixing cups, a 90ml beaker, stir sticks, scoops and wooden rack, instructions and teacher's notes.
GEAR BOX KIT This nice 2 in 1 gear-box kit features (2) different gear ratios (1:60 and 1:280) with output speeds of approx. 200 and 42 rpm respectfully in (2) switchable modes, plus a 3VDC motor so you can use the finished product to drive pulleys, wheels, fans, science projects, or maybe a toy car. Requires only regular household tools to assemble it, and has (4) adjustable mounting brackets. Overall size when finished is 2-7/8" x 3-1/2" x 5-8" high.
Water Test Kit Watersafe® Well-Water Test Kit, a 10 parameter, single-use kit made for testing well-water or city water. Contains tests that will detect coliform bacteria, pesticides, nitrates, lead, iron, nitrites, pH, chlorine, copper and hardness. Includes an instruction manual and EPA drinking water standards. Easy to use, with results on the spot.
SIMPLE MACHINES KIT Physics starts here. Thames & Kosmos makes this dandy little kit to build models of all six simple machines: levers, pulleys, inclined planes, screws, wedges and wheels & axles, along with a spring scale to measure forces. You add a plastic pop bottle for weight. For ages 8 and up.
SOLAR SCIENCE EXPERIMENT KIT Teach a kid (8 and up) the basics of solar power. This excellent educational kit from Elenco comes with (9) 0.5VDC solar cells pre-wired in sets of (3) and mounted in a 5" x 4" x 7/16" black-plastic frame with screw terminals on the bottom. The kit includes a 1.5VDC motor with leads and a mount, a fan blade and (4) plastic discs from 5/8" dia to 2" dia for mounting on the motor shaft, a 1.5V incandescent bulb with leads, and more!
FRUIT-POWERED LCD CLOCK KIT The vegetable- or fruit-powered clock never gets old. You get (2) copper and (2) zinc electrodes, 4" x 1/8", a couple of pieces of wire and a little 1-1/8" dia LCD clock. You don't add any batteries, just bring a lemon, lime, grapefruit, potato, kiwi, strawberries (or some cola if you're not a healthy eater) and time is on your side.
