FASCINATIONS® STEEL DRAGONFLY MODEL KIT
Metal Models Are Better Models
From Fascinations®, these small model kits are made from intricately laser-cut polished steel. Punch the pieces out from the 4-1/4" square sheet and put them together with the tiny tabs. You pick the dragonfly, with a 4-1/2" wingspan; the Black Pearl pirate ship, approx 3-1/2" long; or the Mars rover which will have about a 2-1/2" wheelbase. For ages 14+, because they take plenty of small motor skills.

LEVITATION DEMO
Float Like A (Graphite) Butterfly
Physics faculty alert: It's very small, but teaches a powerful lesson, this little diamagnetic-properties demo kit. You get (4) plated magnets, each 1/4" square x 3/32", and (2) 1/4" square pieces of graphite to float above them. The graphite may have slight chips along the edge but that won't affect the effect. Includes instructions/fact sheet.

METAL MARVELS EIFFEL TOWER MODEL
Magnificent Metal Mini-Model
We spit on plastic. And so will you when you see these laser-cut bright steel models from Fascinations®. Snap-together pieces. The models are small, but worthy of permanent display, and designed for the grown-ups to assemble and display, rather than the kids to play with. You pick the Metal Marvels™ 3-1/2” long x 2-3/4” wide space shuttle Atlantis. (They aren’t making any more big shuttles, Pilgrim.) Or the 4-1/2” tall x 1-3/4” wide at the base MetalWorks™ Eiffel Tower.

DRAGON ROBOT KIT
The Pet Of Tomorrow
Our robotic kingii dragon (Chlamydosaurus kingii, or frilled-neck lizard) is better than a puppy because you don't have clean up after it and it won't chew the furniture. This kit has (2) motors and digital control via IR sensors to activate LED eyes, motorized mouth and pop-out frill, plus "escape" and "approach me" modes, which retreat and make nice, respectively. You'll need (4) "AAA" batteries and some patience, as this kit is delightfully challenging. Finished dragon will be 13-1/2" long x 8-1/4" x 5". For ages 10+. Check out our short video on Youtube!

TUMBLING ROBOT
Hyperactive Robot Kit
The Tumbling Robot Experiment is relatively easy to assemble and has sensors in his (her?) belly, back and legs so he (it?) can fall and get up again, like some of us humans. At 8" tall, in between tumbles, it's a manic, sliding, chomping, swinging thingy, like a droid cookie monster in a Pilates class. You put a pair of "AA"s in his feet.

MAGIC MAGNETIC UK PENNIES KIT
Magnetic Money Fun
This highly instructive and fun Expanded 4th Edition kit from the UK teaches magnetic polarity using a pair of powerful 3-3/8" x 1" sq magnets, (32) newly minted British pennies (20-1 pence, 5-2 pence, 6-5 pence, 1-10 pence) and (1) not-so-new U.S. penny just to prove that their pennies are magnetic and ours aren't. Includes a 77-page booklet with (44) experiments and activities. From Brunel University, The Institute of Physics and The Royal Institution, London.

SCIENCE FAIR STYLE DC MOTOR KIT
Motor Along
Everything you need to build a little DC motor is included in this kit (except sandpaper, screwdriver, scissors and, of course, an AA battery). The instructions are simple and explain the theory as well as assembly. Fun and educational.

WOODEN ORNITHOPTER MODEL KIT
Build Your Own Ornithopter
When ornithopters roamed the earth…oops, no, it just sounds like a dinosaur. The ornithopter was one of Leonardo's masterful designs, although this one just led to a bunch of guys on winged bicycles plummeting to the earth in the 19th century. Still extremely cool, however, in this kit version. Pre-cut, unpainted wooden pieces assemble with pegs to make a crank-operated moving model with a 24" wingspan, complete with a human figure, which our model-guru calls a 15th C. crash-test dummy.
