WELCOME TO SCIENCE TOY MAKER

Mysterious, Kinetic, Noisy, Do-It-Yourself Science Projects that Entice Scientific Investigation

You have found the non-commercial 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.

All science toys and projects:

 

THIS IS BRILLIANT AND EASY TO MAKE!
My friend David Williamson comes up with science projects that are so creative that they seem like they're from another world. More excellent electrostaticscs from the Exploratorium. And Steven at Rimstar.org explains what materials work to create static (Triboelectric Effect). All 3 of these channels are treasures that you'd be crazy not to explore and subscribe to.

 

HUMAN POWERED DRAGONFLY HELICOPTERS
These go higher than tall trees; no batteries and made from recycled material. And you can send up gliders that are time-released. There are also web pages that explain the details. Beta/unfinished instructions for making them are uploaded, but not for the meek. Better instructions coming soon.
