Grow Your Own Pizza
Just like the pizza farmers in Calabria! Except you don’t have to grow your own wheat. Our each is a 10-1/4” dia terra-cotta-toned plastic tray with removable compartments in which you can start sweet pepper, basil, oregano and tomato seeds (all included) in potting soil (also included) before planting them outdoors and waiting until they’re a pizza. Includes a little mister, a scoop, a bunch of cute stickers and instructions. For ages 6+.

Tornado Tube
Simple, yet clever 1" dia. by 3" long plastic device to demonstrate the vortex effect of a tornado. Partially fill with water one of the two half-gallon size plastic soda bottles which you supply. Screw the bottles into opposite ends of the tube which we supply. Tip so the full bottle is on top and give it a circular starting whirl. Presto! You have a vortex. Call it a tornado if you're a meteorologist, a Charybdis if you're a classicist, or a whirlpool if you're into oceanography. Lots of fun and a fine opportunity to attempt to explain the effects of the earth's rotation on water draining out of a bathtub. The phenomena are related we're told, but good luck!!

Home-Grown Are Always Best
We’d start with triops, lovely little crustacean-ettes that have been around since Triassic days. You pick the Ghost Triops, see-through honeys, or the larger Gigantic Triops (gigantic among lesser beasts). In both cases you get eggs, baby and adult food, and a pipette. You add a bright light source, bottled natural spring water and a small tank. They hatch in a day or three, are full grown in a month or so, and have a life-cycle of up to 90 days.  Ages 8+.

Even Dinos Pooped
Can you dig it? Yes, you can. Our Tedco Dino Poop excavation kit includes a 5" x 3-1/4" x 1-3/8" block with genuine, multi-million-year-old dinosaur coprolite inside, plus a small mallet, chisel, brush, acrylic magnifier and a fact sheet. For ages 6+, but really you’re never too old for dinosaur dung.
