For May, any order with 4 items or more will get a 20% discount when you use the code STEM4GRADS at checkout. But, we're only going to let this code get used 10 times! There are about 500 people who read this page monthly, so grab your discount now if you have someone special in mind!

May Resource - Get someone inspired by science:

Do you have a younger sibling, nephew, niece or family friend who would love to be wowed by science demos? The summer is the best time to get these students engaged and inspired. Consider spending a day at a local science learning center to pass on your passion for science. We put together a list of 278 Science Learning Centers, sorted by US state, to make it easy for you to find one near you!

May News - Growing fast!

Last holiday season, the amazing flood of orders was a bit overwhelming from the fulfillment side. This year I decided it was time to get a warehouse and some help. I found a small logistics business out of New Jersey who will be fulfilling most of our orders starting in May. This should give me a lot more time to work on fun new things like The Lab Coat Project and new Pocket cards! 

Don't forget: We still need your feedback for The Lab Coat Project!

We're over 900 responses and are crawling toward the finish line! We'll close the survey soon, so make sure your voice is heard in this design process by filling out the 8-minute Google Form embedded below. 


        Just for fun:

        Sometimes you design the experiment, sometimes you ARE the experiment.
