Reinventing Science

Reinventing Science is a series of fun and unique science kits.  Experimenters of all ages can learn about principles of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) by performing experiments just like the great inventors did.  In the process they also learn about invention and history.  Each kit is hand made in the USA and is designed with sound educational principles, best practices, and safety in mind.  Instruction manuals contain multiple experiments including troubleshooting information  suitable for use in schools, home schools, for use in a science fair, or by science hobbyists.  The kits are also supported by a network of online resources including this blog, a fan page on Facebook™, video clips on Youtube™, free downloads on Scribd™, and more.  Kits are available from your favorite science educational products dealers including some of your favorite sources such as: Educational Innovations, The Maker Shed, PASCO Scientific, Edmund ScientificScience Kit, and more.  (see “Where to Purchase” below)

Our kits have the following audience: Science Educators, Parents, Students, Science Fair Participants and Hobby Experimenters.  Ages 12 and up under adult supervision.
