    Science Based Gadgets/Toys

    For my niece's 15th birthday today (fearsomely gifted at everything but especially maths and science), in addition to cash I gave her a 'Feel Flux.' This is a 'toy' that is a great demonstration of Lenz's Law. Added to that it really is a work of art and beautifully made.

    With my nephew's birthday in 5 months, what scientific gadget/toy can you suggest? Nothing that he could harm/kill his sister with!

    The Science Museum has a range of kits. They're not cheap for what they are but they do stimulate conversation. You can select by age in the online shop.

    Hand boilers are fun and quite dramatic:
