Toy Type CP -- Creative Product EQ -- Equipment ES -- Educational SC -- Science UN -- Unique Tiny Science makes science fun by letting children perform experiments using precision, but with miniature lab equipment. The S.T.E.A.M.-based activity book features 20 scaled-down science experiments using the tiny tools. The Tiny Science lab includes three test tubes in a stand, a 6 ml beaker, a 6 ml Erlenmeyer flask, a 6 ml graduated cylinder, a pipette, a two-piece petri dish, a funnel, a four-piece balance scale, gram weights, a magnifier, and a stainless steel ruler. The activity book with 20 experiments makes this innovative product unique. Kids feel like real scientists when they’re concocting slime in a 6 ml graduated beaker or when they’re dropping vinegar from a micro pipette into a teensy test tube of soda solution. Using the itty-bitty balance scale to weigh popcorn kernels against a chocolate chip is an exercise in precision and dexterity. Watching the miniature magnifier flip an image teaches optics in a way that feels like magic. The science principles introduced include acid-base reactions, optics, non-Newtonian fluids, chemical reactions, density, measurement, crystallization, and much more.
