Science For Young Ages

These products are intended for young age groups and those who are just getting interested in the fields of science and electronics. Kits are for beginners and are simple to put together and safe to use.



A Space-Age Habitat for Ants

AntWorks is based on a 2003 NASA Space Shuttle experiment to study animal life in space and test how ants successfully tunnel in microgravity. The AntWorks gel is complete with nutrients and supplements to promote healthy growth in the new colony. Watch ants live, work, and tunnel in the nutritious, non-toxic gel as they create series upon series of intricate tunnels. Turn on the bright blue LEDs to highlight the tunnels and gel (also works great as a bedside, desk, or the perfect "night-light" in any room). Enjoy hours of fascinating fun and educational excitement as you watch your AntWorks architecture evolve!

These projects kits are excellent for those budding electronic engineers from age 6 and up

To teach principles of Electronics and Electricity. Experiments and kit building with ease, practically no tools needed. Each part is designed for easy and quick assembly. Components connected together with press-studs. The easy to handle components snap together to create a huge number of different circuits on the base board. Many hours of fun while learning. The process of actually building the circuits provides a real understanding of how circuits work. All wires are secured within the components so the kit is entirely safe and amazingly simple to operate. Kids of all ages will rapidly learn how to set up the circuits and will be entranced by the results of their experiments. Older kids will increase their knowledge of electronics by using their imaginations to design their own circuits. Understanding of Electronics is a vital part of a child's scientific education. These kits remove the frustration of handling small and delicate electronic parts, replacing them with safe and reliable components. They work on AA Batteries, not provided. Complete with instruction booklet.

Crook's Radiometer
Shows photons causing a positive mechanical reaction to light proving that light is also photons with mass as well as electro-magnetic waves.

Invented by William Crooke in the 1860s, this device demonstrates the conversion of light energy into mechanical energy. The vanes in the evacuated glass bulb are Black and White in color. The dark vanes absorb the rays and the light vanes reflect the rays. This is a great way to study how light energy is converted into mechanical energy. The stronger the light, the faster it spins. It measures approximately 5" by 3".
