Surprise! Surprise!

Surprise your parents with a little science at home. “Science Surprises” is a 192-page paperback in its third edition with over 100 experiments that can be done using common household goodies. OK, a couple of things might require a trip to the hardware store, but still.  The science ranges from the Bernoulli principle and Stroop effect to making your own perfume and cold cream. (And remember what Shaw said: “Science never solves a problem without creating ten more,” so that makes a thousand experiments.)

Hang On There

Looking for a very, very, very long refrigerator magnet? At 15 ft, this 3/8" wide x 1/16" thick magnetic strip should just about go up one side, across the top, and down the other side. It's flexible, but can be broken if bent back against itself -- which means that small children can make craft magnets without having to cut the strip or themselves! We love it when a plan comes together!

This is your chance to own a genuine cow magnet. Fed to cows by vets and farmers to attract the odd metallic parts of cows' diets (they tend to scarf up nails, staples and other stuff with the grass) and prevent bovine traumatic reticuloperitonitis, also known as hardware disease. Used for lots of magnetic lab experiments because they're so handy. In plated alnico, 3" long x 1/2" dia in a rounded tubular shape. Approx a 5-lb pull.
