//GEEK & CO. SCIENCE

Science-themed project kits that put fun first to make learning truly approachable and entertaining. Each kit makes a lasting, keepsake item.

  • An ornithopter is a mechanical aircraft that flies by flapping its wings. It imitates the flapping wing flight of birds, insects, and bats. Build four ornithopter models including a bird, bat, butterfly, and dragonfly. The wings work like propellers to generate lift and thrust, powered by a wind-up rubber band engine. A streamlined and durable bamboo and plastic building system enables the models to be light enough to fly gracefully through the air like winged animals.
  • SPACE FARM

    £14.50
    Geeks in space! Explore what it would take to set up an extraterrestrial farm on another planet. Experiment with a nutrient gel to grow garden cress in hydroponic tubes without soil. In the greenhouse dome, grow the alien-like succulent Tiger’s Jaws (Faucaria tigrina). Find out what plants need in order to grow and how those things might be provided on another world. Geekstronaut figures tend to your space farm while it grows.  
  • Fly into physics fun with five models driven by an awesome rubber band powered propeller. Using ultralight plastic and bamboo parts, build a helicopter, fan boat, airplane, car, and catamaran. Learn how the elastic material stores energy and then releases it to move the models.
  • Make sound waves visible with this awesome device called a vibration speaker. It turns practically any surface into a larger speaker. The audio jack connects to standard audio output sockets. Stick the speaker onto a variety of surfaces and objects to find out which materials produce the best sound. Experiment to see sound waves ripple through a tray of sand, water, and other substances. With signal generating apps, you can experiment to visualize different sound wave patterns.
  • SLIME TIME

    £14.50
    Construct an electro-goop powered battery and use it to juice up a digital clock. Learn about electrochemical reactions, electrodes, and batteries.
  • GLOW STICK LAB

    £14.50
    Make awesome glow sticks that shine in cool colours under UV lights and that glow in the dark. Mix up five different glowing concoctions using the included materials and substances from around your house, and then learn why they glow!
  • TRICK STICK

    £14.50
    This kit uses a “magic wand” to show the stunning power of electrostatic energy which will inflate the included objects into 3D shapes and hold them invisibly in the air! Power up the generating wand with 2x AA Batteries and hold your own “Magic” show of levitating objects. The full-colour manual teaches the user about the science behind the kit. The electrical potential is similar to that generated by the Van de Graaf Generator; an important high voltage generating device now used for accelerating subatomic particles to high speed, a useful tool for fundamental physics research.
  • Construct awesome flying gliders with ultralight plastic and bamboo parts. Build five different types of planes with different wing configurations to learn how wings provide lift and how planes stay up in the air.
  • Want to see your name in lights? With this kit, you can use a cool lighting technology called electroluminescent wire (EL wire) to make a kind of neon sign. You can write your name or any word you want! The manual will teach you how and will also explain how EL wire works.
  • MUSICAL UFO

    £14.50
    Build an electronic musical device that works like a simple theremin, an instrument in which the pitch is controlled by the movement of your hand. In this device, a light sensor inside the UFO’s dome senses the changing light level as you move your hand above it, changing the sound.
  • Grow a big beautiful crystal and assemble a special platform to display it with a color-changing LED circuit inside. Learn about crystal formation and LED technology.
  • PLASMA REACTOR

    £14.50
    Make a cool, bubbling lamp and learn some chemistry in the process. With this kit, you can build a fun, oozing, fizzing lamp that uses oil, water, and carbon dioxide gas from fizzing tablets. Learn about the different states of matter: solid, liquid, gas, and plasma!
