The Bacteria Farm is a great first biology kit for any budding scientist. Cultivate & observe bacteria from different samples with a variety of experiments.
Recommended ages 8+
This kit is designed to demonstrate the principles of thrust, acceleration and jet propulsion. The science behind launching the LiquiFly Water-Powered Rocket is the same as any other rockets - create thrust from water and air. Bam goes the rocket!!
This kit has everything you need is in the kit. Takes approximately 2 minutes to set-up.
Try experimenting with different water levels, and varying the air pressure to test how thrust is affected. Full instructions are provided in each kit - covering safety, set-up and how to really max out your thrust.
Note: Adult supervision is required for this activity. Improper use of this device could cause injury.

This 6 part series reveals how scientific ideas have shaped the modern world and how science made history. For 3,000 years people have wrestled with the great questions of existence. What is out there, what is the world made of, where did we come from?
$229.95The MOVA globe ( 12cm ) is the first member of a new family of objects that come quietly to life when touched by light, without wires or batteries. The globe floats at a point of perfect balance between buoyant forces and gravitational forces, and slowly turns as it feels the force of the Earth's magnetic field and the energy carried in light. Its perpetual, quiet motion brings a tranquil point of focus to a room. Add more light and watch Venus spin faster, dim the setting and observe it slowing. It really is an amazing sight to see! The MOVA globe works similarly to a compass in that the Earth's magnetic field makes this work!
