  2. The Goethe Wall Barometer

    The Goethe Wall Barometer

    Our Goethe Wall Barometer is hand blown from a traditional glass formula called “forest glass” in Lauscha, Thuringia in Germany. It is a copy of the original barometer from 1792/93 that was found in Goethe’s house in Weimar after his death. The slight green tinge of the glass and its texture make it look like a real antique. The barometer is a sealed glass vessel with a long open spout and a glass ring on the top so it can be hung on the wall. On a day with average air pressure, fill the barometer about halfway with boiled or distilled water. You can use the enclosed dye tablet to colour the water, which increases the visibility of the water level in the spout. The higher the air pressure rises, the lower the water level in the spout will be. This indicates fair weather. If the air pressure drops, usually an indication of bad weather or a storm, the water level in the spout rises. Make sure you don’t overfill the barometer to avoid water stains on your furniture or carpet when the pressure drops very low. To ensure accurate pressure readings, hang the barometer in a place with constant temperature (not over a radiator or in direct sunshine). A very decorative instrument, an interesting conversation piece, and a great present! (The barometer is made from glass and children should only handle it under adult supervision!) Learn More
  3. Pressure Power Science Experiment Kit

    Pressure Power Science Experiment Kit

    Follow in the footsteps of famous scientists such as Blaise Pascal, Daniel Bernoulli and Sir Isaac Newton to explore kinetic energy, density, pressure and motion. Use the principles and laws developed by these scientists in an exciting collection of hands-on activities to discover how pressure power can be used to drive a hovercraft, control a submarine, launch a rocket, propel a boat or even lift a pile of books!

  4. Power House

    Power House

    Human civilization's energy consumption is growing. At the same time, the harmful environmental impact of our energy usage is becoming apparent. A massive global effort to adopt renewable energy and use our resources more sustainably has begun. To live sustainably, we must use Earth's resources at a rate at which they can be replenished, and thus provide for future generations to live as we have. Power House provides a comprehensive overview of the many forms of alternative energy, and makes environmental protection and energy conservation issues tangible with hands-on models. With this kit, you can learn about alternative energy and sustainable living by conducting 100 experiments and building energy related models. • Build the Power House and then conduct experiments in and around the house. • Learn about energy-efficient construction materials and passive house design. • Experiment with heating, cooling, conduction, convection, and insulation. • Investigate Earth's climate, the water cycle, and that inexhaustible power plant in the sky: the sun. • Test passive solar collection methods with a solar collector. • Hook up a photovoltaic solar panel to generate electricity from sunlight. • Build wind turbines to extract energy from the wind. • Construct a greenhouse and learn about the energy conservation tricks used by plants. The 64-page, full-colour experiment manual provides instructions, scientific explanations, and energy-saving tips. Learn More
  5. Little Labs Intro To Engineering

    Little Labs Intro To Engineering

    Intro to engineering is the perfect kit to get children into all aspects of engineering. By engaging in hands-on activities, children will learn how engineers apply their scientific and technical knowledge to design machines and devices. It includes 21 experiments and projects focusing on five different sections including: • Engineering basics – including experiments with levers, forces and pulleys and building simple devices using these components • Engineering on land – including building vehicles with wheels such as a race car and a win car • Engineering with air – including building a helicopter, a pinwheel, a parachute, a glider, a balloon rocket, and an air-powered carousel • Engineering in water – including building a diving bell, a sailboat and a paddle boat • Engineering at home – doing experiments modelling the telephone and television With a 48-page guidebook, Intro to Engineering teaches engineering fundamentals with step-by-step, hands-on experiments and building projects. .
