Dear Fellow Educators, Home Schoolers & Science Enthusiasts,

Welcome to our 2013 Catalogue of amazing, intriguing and hard-to-find

science related items.

We use and demonstrate many of our items on a daily basis during our visits to

classrooms in Victoria. They are the ones that work for us, so in order to assist you, we have

drawn up a list of suggested products that will complement the Australian curriculum (see p 41).

We supply notes and classroom tips with many of our products, enabling you to integrate these

items seamlessly into your curriculum.

Thanks for your continued support and wishing you a fulfilling science teaching year!

Density Tubes Kit

This is a very special density column. Students drop a mixture of

blue and white beads into a tube, add alcohol, water and salt and

. . . the beads will auto-separate. But then amazingly the two bead

layers slowly move closer together to the middle of the liquid layer

. . . How can beads float in the middle of the liquid? What part

does the salt play? Can be used over and over. Original idea by

Lynn Higgins of Polymer Ambassadors.

Included: Plastic tubes with lids (6), 48 beads,

special salt, instructions & worksheets

Required: Isopropyl alcohol (20 ml per tube)

from hardware store .

Expanding Cubes and Spheres

Super absorbent polymers absorb large volumes of water when placed in water and are turned into

hydro gels. The volume change can be an incredible 250x of the original volume and is fully reversible.

The gelled polymer contains up to 95% water so it has the same optical density as water and

becomes invisible in water . . .



Expanding Spheres (Gigantic)

This is the most amazing absorption demonstration we have experienced! Grow gigantic

water spheres in hours! Pop the 15 mm soft spheres in water and in 48 - 72 hours (2 - 3

days) you will have gigantic water gel spheres up to 77 mm in diameter! And as they

contain 98% water, the clear spheres will be invisible in water. Add food colouring to the

water (3 drops per 250 ml water) to produce coloured water spheres. Leave them out

of the water and they’ll shrink back to the original size, then recycle them by expanding

in water again. They make great decorations in flower vases but no one can resist the

amazing slippery gel feel!

Age: 6+ with adult supervision.

M45 A$ 8.00

Expanding Spheres (Large)

Amazing water spheres! Pop these 3.3 mm rock-hard spheres in

water and within hours you will have 20 mm

jelly-like spheres! That’s a 220 times increase in volume! Leave

them out of the water and they return to the original hard spheres.

Then expand them over and over. Bounce, roll or squeeze them or

germinate seeds amongst them. Loads of gelled fun!

Safety: Made from non-toxic super absorbent material, these

spheres are safe & fascinating to touch but due to the small size

are NOT classified as TOYS. We recommend adult supervision.

Super Expanding Crocodile

Experience the exceptional growth of creatures in water to more

than 27 times their original mass. (Our crocodile increased from 77g

to 1640g in a month!)

Integrate math and science classes by making students graph and

investigate the growth of these creatures in length, width, mass and

volume. Then reverse the process by evaporating the water and

make the creatures return to almost their original size.

Please note: It takes 3 to 4 weeks to fully expand.

Magnetic Accelerator

This could be the most amazing science demo of the decade!

A plastic channel supports two neodymium magnets each associated with three steel balls. Now - roll the loose ball slowly towards

This ball activates the second group and the end ball flies off at a fantastic speed.

Yes – this is known as a Gaussian rail gun too!

Solar Vacuum Heat Collector Tube

One of the best inventions of the decade from Australia! The solar

vacuum heat collector tube is the best thermal collector on the

market. It consists of a strengthened double-wall borosilicate

glass tube with the area between the inner and outer walls

evacuated. This acts as a thermos to keep heat from escaping

into the atmosphere via conduction and convection.

While the outer wall is fully transparent to allow solar energy to

pass through unimpeded, the inner layer is treated with a selective

black optical coating which absorbs IR energy radiation with

minimal reflection.

As the tubes are round, they act as passive tracking solar

collectors too. In full sunlight pasteurization temperatures can be

reached in less than 30 minutes and water will boil in 50 minutes.

Lil’ Sucker

Science never sucks, or does it ...?

Students will discover the truth about air pressure and “suction” forces

using this clever drink holder. Slide the rubber ring over a soft drink can and it will

make the can stick to any smooth surface!

Lifting it will require a force of 983N (at sea level) or a clever flick of the finger to

cheat scientifically.

Pressure Mat

This mat will prove instantly that science never sucks. It only pushes or pulls!

Drop the rubber mat on a smooth flat surface and suddenly students can’t lift it

up. You can even lift a small table or lab stool with it, all because of air molecules’

constant motion. Indispensable when talking about the atmosphere or air

Walligator Climbatron Robot

The Walligator is a robot with four powerful ‘suction’ cup feet. It can scale any

smooth surface such as glass, mirrors or plexiglass vertically or horizontally. Its

internal air pressure pump constantly changes the air pressure below the rubber feet

so that the higher atmospheric air pressure in the room can push the

Walligator against the surface: “Science never sucks, only pushes or pulls”,

Walligator has moving eyes and a visible pumping mechanism with an

auto-reverse mechanism so it reverses once it hits a barrier.

This is a great gift and is supplied with full instructions.
