Glow If You Love Science

Chemiluminescence, which is glow-in-the-dark to anyone who doesn’t like six-syllable words, is a favorite here. Half the warehouse glows in the dark, and that’s not counting the staff. All of which is why we’re selling this 30-piece Glowing Chemistry kit from Thames & Kosmos. Comes with 3g of luminol, 6g of potassium hexacyanoferrate and 12g of sodium carbonate, plus test tubes, pipette, goggles, measuring cups, stir sticks and UV beads among other stuff, including a 48-page manual with (22) different experiments (because 22 of the same experiments would be stupid). For ages 10+. Made in Germany.

Bone Up On Anatomy

You're not going to blow money on an actual human skeleton, are you? Consider that for a tenth of the price you can get an anatomically accurate skeleton done in plastic. This model is male (judging by the hips) and has many articulated joints-jaw, shoulder, knee, etc. Its small size (33") makes it practical for classroom use, since it can be passed around the room. Other nice touches include discrete neck vertebrae, a sectioned skull, and very little "flash" from the plastic molds. It also comes with a metal display stand, weighted at the bottom to prevent spills. Yes, some concessions had to be made because of the size and price, but this is still an invaluable teaching tool, and quite a nice decoration for those with morbid minds.
