Top 10 Science Kits and Experiments for Geeky Kids and Grownups

From chemistry to magnets, including robots and recycled toys, these science kits for kids and grown-ups will keep you entertained and shape your brain.

Here at The Geek Gift we love science toys, kits and experiments. They promote extended imaginative play, are a great educational tool and are so much fun to use! I grew up with a chemistry set our parents invested on and gave us for Christmas. We played for years with the same set, and even had a “laboratory” – hell, we even had membership cards for the kids of the neighbourhood!

These kits have been selected to represent different disciplines and levels (you can find the info in each description or bullet list), so there is a nice variety to pick from. They are all hands-on activities and supplies that meet the strictest science standards and get support from real scientists and educators, and their are not just the classical sets but little gems you can easily get from Amazon.

Science kits and experiments make a great gift for older kids and grown-ups alike. Take a look at our selection, and share with us if you had a favourite science toy or kit when growing up!
