Chambers Dictionary defines science as 'knowledge ascertained by observation and experiment'.
Therefore, in some ways, children trying to kick a football into goal or blow a rainbow soap bubble, are already scientist, learning while they play and have fun. The items on sale in the Science Sleuth Shop are chosen to encourage active investigation.
Investigate by observation. We will always stock equipment designed to help, from microscopes to simple hand lenses.
Play with our science based toys is fun, but they are also chosen to stimulate curiosity and make the user ask themselves 'why does that happen'.
Learn with our toys, gadgets and experiments. Feel the pull of gravity or magnetism. Watch and care for living things. Investigate the best conditions to fly a glider or kite. Wonder at the beauty of a crystal in a rock or the instant colour change of a chemical indicator.
I started a lifetime ago because my mother, who was a scientist,took me screaming and shouting to local quarries looking for fossils, in the school holidays. So welcome to my shop and it's science based toys( I think she would have approved)
