DAVINCI AERIAL SCREW HELICOPTER KIT
Leo Vinci Kits
Return with us now to those thrilling days of the 15th century, when Leonardo was designing stuff you wouldn't have thought of even if you'd paid attention in class and applied yourself. You choose from these wooden models of his genius designs. His unrealized aerial screw (think helicopter) stands approx 15" tall on a 9" square base and has a canvas canopy. Includes a 12-page manual and all the parts. For ages 9+. The trebuchet (think catapult) is based on his original 1482 design, stands approx 24" tall x 12-3/4" x 4-1/2" and comes with all the parts, including a clay ball to launch at your favorite model castle or your sister. Includes an 8-page instruction book and is for ages 12+. You'll need glue, a ruler and scissors for both, plus some small clamps for the trebuchet.

0.1UF 250V CAPACITORS
Capacitor Quartet
These 0.1uF ceramic capacitors have potted radial leads of stranded wire and are rated for up to 250V. Measuring 1-1/2" x 1/2", these are older-type capacitors and are probably more for point-to-point wiring, not PCB mounting.

SCIENCE FACT AND TRIVIA BOOK
Useless Science You Can Use
The Useless Science Fact-O-Pedia, despite a semi-dumb name, is a quite useful trivia collection, with a focus on science instead of old Seinfeld episodes, or shortstops. Runs over 300 pages with a couple of hundred categories in alphabetical order with a handful to a dozen facts about each, from amino acids to zymurgy, which is our favorite. Perfect bio lab bathroom book. And a horse has 89 feet of intestines.

CLEAR 75ML PLASTIC JARS
PET Jars
The best thing about a pet jar is, it never needs to be walked and it never soils the carpet. But PET in this case means polyethylene terephthalate, and this clear plastic jar holds 75ml (approx 2-1/2 oz) with a gasketed safety screw cap. Measures 3-1/2" tall x 1-5/8" dia with a 1" ID mouth.

SONIC-SENSITIVE UFO ROBOT
The Shy Extraterrestrial
This extremely cute alien peeks out and waves his arms from the top of his UFO, which spins in circles, but when you yell at him, or make any sharp, loud noise, he ducks back down into his spacecraft, as most aliens would, and goes quiet. Measures 4-5/8" dia x 4-1/2" tall when he's in up-alien mode. Simple assembly required. Includes an 18-page manual with assembly instructions and sonic-movement challenges. You add a trio of "AAA" earth batteries.
