Fun gift for a scientist

A fun inexpensive gift for a sciency person in your life - I got the microbiology set for my sister (who works in a microbiology lab)!

So much fun!!!

My son recently graduated with a degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology and I ordered these as a gift. He lives with four other roommates and they have all had a blast!! Literally, every person that comes over to visit is drawn to the fridge and tries to make the "Best New Sentence" they can...and they will steal words from other sentences if needed!!! These magnets are very high quality both in construction and in printing on the individual magnets...and incredibly affordable for the amount of entertainment they provide!!! I will be on this website often!!! Thanks Genius Lab Gear!!
