Science Toy Maker - an amazing website!

Just like everyone else ... we spend way too much time on the internet ... but sometimes it pays off!

Science Toy Maker is fantastic. It has a great range of easy to do experiments. Ranging from experiments that just need a piece of paper to those that are more involved engineering challenges. But they are all do-able! Specially if you have lots of stuff lying around at home, in the shed or at school. It's not a flash site by any means but it is chocka=block! This is how they describe their site ... 

'You have found the site for people who like to roll up their sleeves and make science toys and projects. You won't find slick, well-designed web pages here--more like the digital equivalent of a messy workshop. If you poke around, though, you'll find good stuff. Science toy maker is a resource for inspired kids, parents, teachers, teenagers, home schoolers, science fair participants and citizen scientists everywhere. '

Emily and Alan from Science in a Van are pretty keen to try out some of their ideas. We'll be posting up our attempts here. If you try any yourself, please let us know and send us a photo or a link to your blog in the comment box below.
