Before Isaac Newton became the father of physics, an accomplished mathematician, or a leader of the scientific revolution, he was a boy living in an apothecary's house, observing and experimenting, recording his observations of the world in a tiny notebook...experimented with alchemy--a process of chemical reactions that seemed, at the time, to be magical.
KIT: Atom physical science models -When one takes quantum theory into account, it is clear that the knowledge of the atom is over-simplified. Current depictions of the atom, such as this model, therefore show electron orbits not as neat ellipses, but rather an appearance of a fuzzy "electron cloud." This up-to-date model will illustrate to students the latest in scientific discovery.
KIT:This amazing demo starts when an end of a 50-ft length of beaded chain is pulled over the edge of its container. As the end falls and accelerates, the chain rises higher than the rim and seems suspended in the air. Students see this as a discrepant event. They will ask to see it again and again. This demo is great for explaining self-siphoning polymers and Newton's First Law. Holding the handle of the included large mug enhances the visibility.
KIT: Bright atom : atomic structure - Both the lid and the base of the box have four electron shells. Use the protons, neutrons and electrons to demonstrate atomic structure. Make atomes, isotopes and ions.
KIT:A set of 17 atom models--representing six different elements--to build, scan, and identify molecules. These atoms 'bond' together using magnets that accurately portray the single bonds, double bonds, and free electrons that make up the molecules of the universe. A free app gives students a wealth of information about the molecules they've created. Includes a periodic table scanning mat, quickstart guide, and 16-page experiment manual.
KIT: Teach water concepts with hands-on Magnetic Water Molecule Kit. Embedded magnets accurately reflect positive & negative charges, allowing students to feel the various strengths of hydrogen, covalent, and ionic bonds, discover hydrogen bonding, make ice, dissolve salt, evaporate water, explore transpiration, create ethanol, and show the differences between molecular adhesion, cohesion, and capillary action and to demonstrate surface tension, evaporation, condensation, and solubility.

KIT: Ores of common metals - Bauxite -- Chalcopyrite -- Malachite -- Pyrite -- Hematite -- Magnetite -- Limonite -- Pyrrhotite -- Siderite -- Galena -- Dolomite -- Pyrolusite -- Cassiterite -- Sphalerite -- Beryl. "A mineral or rock, which contains enough of a chemical element to make it economically feasible to mine, is called an ore.
KIT: Heat conductometer. -This spoke-type conductometer demonstrates the diverse thermal conductivity of 5 distinct metals. It consists of 5 spokes, each 9.5 cm long, radiating from a brass hub, which represent the following metals: Aluminum, Brass, Steel, Nickel and Copper.
