It's an ENORMOUS science kit containing loads of Spangler favorites for a great value. The 30-page instruction manual will guide you and your young scientist through each experiment with easy to follow directions and simple science explanations.
It’s a science lab in a bag. Make up a pile of Insta-Snow, experiment with waterproof sand and explore the science of UV light as you use the sun to make white beads instantly change colors. Grow a test tube dinosaur, learn how to make water disappear and make squishy jelly crystals. Recommended for children 8 and up.
These colorful percussion tubes range in length from 30 cm to 61 cm (12" to 24") and provide a full octave of consecutive notes. You can compose a simple tune by yourself, play together with your family, or drum with all of your friends. Experiment with the science of sound.

When Steve didn't quite have the answer, he vamped a little and tried to answer the question the best he could...
We salute and thank all of those great teachers out there who find engaging activities to get their students back in the seats and ready to learn for another school year. If you're a teacher, you know all too well the challenges we face keeping our students engaged and interested. If we're not careful, it's easy for some students to disappear [...]

Little known fact... I love to juggle. Better known fact... I'm not that good, but that's not a reflection on my teacher - a great book called Juggling for the Complete Klutz. This was my introduction to Klutz Press some 30 years ago - an amazing company with a vision for really innovative product. So, when I was invited by the [...]
There's only one problem with these "best of" video lists... someone has to actually sort through all of the videos and come up with a list! Props to our genius video editor, Bradley Mayhew, for all of his editing magic in 2008. When the year starts out with 4,500 pounds of cornstarch and water and a cement truck on The Ellen [...]
