Science kit for young researchers
About this kit:
What is "Static Electricity"? It seems that many people are aware of the concept but don't really know how to scientifically explain it. Kids experimenting with this "Crazy Scientist Lab" kit will know everything there is to know about static electricity and enjoy amazing tricks and experiments! In this science kit, kids will be exposed to the fascinating world of invisible atoms that are all around us, some with electrical particles that create static electricity in certain objects. Using this electrical current we will perform really cool experiments such as separating salt and pepper grains, sticking a balloon to the wall using electricity, building flying saucers and an electroscope, making Styrofoam balls dance and many more exciting experiments.
This science kit comes equipped with all the necessary equipment excluding some common household items. It includes a clear guide accompanied with photos of the experiments steps as well as fascinating scientific explanations and facts.

Why is the Milky Way blue? Why isn't a black hole dark? How many stars can you see with your naked eye?
Humans are the only known astronomers in the universe. When we look up at the night sky, we are linked to our ancestors. Away from city lights, we can see what generations of people before us have wondered at and weaved stories around.
But all that will change. The Andromeda Galaxy is rushing towards us at 400,000 kilometres an hour.
When Galaxies Collide will guide you to look at the night sky afresh. It peers 5.86 billion years into the future to consider the fate of Earth and its inhabitants. Will the solution be to live in space without a planet to call home? Will one of the other 100 billion planets spawn life?
Learn how to watch this space.
$24.95A highly entertaining and informative introduction to our planet and the universe we live in. Have you ever wondered what dark matter is or why galaxies collide? Or why the Moon is gradually drifting away from Earth? Space is really, really big, as Douglas Adams once pointed out, and there is no better guide to it than Fred Watson, astronomer to the stars. Fred Watson has taken the many, many questions that have been asked by listeners of his popular, long-running radio shows, and answered them in Why Is Uranus Upside Down? * How can you identify the constellations? * Does the Earth wobble? * Could you dump nuclear waste into the Sun? * What makes planets round? * Where's the nearest black hole? * Are there other universes? * Can we ever know everything? This highly entertaining and informative introduction to our planet and the Universe we live in is a must-read for enquiring minds of all ages.

About this kit:
This kit focuses on finger prints. Children will experiment with producing their own fingerprint and classifying it. They'll learn how to extract invisible fingerprints from various surfaces using iron powder, talcum powder, adhesive tape and brushes - just like real crime scene investigators. The final experiment will be creating their own 3D finger replica using Alginate powder and plaster powder!
7 fun experiments inside!
