Updated on December 14, 2014

Educational and FUN Scientific Gift Ideas

Toys that involve the Environment, are Fun and Educational, What more could you ask for Some of the BEST gift ideas this year are not only Eco products, teaching about Renewable energy products but are interactive and FUN gifts for kids. So if you are looking for a unique and unusual scientific green gift idea for the environmental enthusiast? Or a gift with purpose for our future scientists? Perhaps someone you know is thinking of going green, these ideas will give them plenty to think about and keep them entertained for hours.

Find here a complete guide to some of the best environmental gifts on-line.

Educational and FUN Scientific Gift Ideas. Eco Building Projects - learn about sustainable living

Thames and Kosmos Alternative Energy and Environmental Science Power House Green Essentials
Thames and Kosmos Alternative Energy and Environmental Science Power House Green Essentials

The ten building projects include: the power house itself, a greenhouse, a solar cell array, a passive solar collector, a solar oven, an air conditioner, a refrigerator, a hydrometer, a lemon battery, and a wind power generator. Experiment with the heating, cooling, and insulation of the house and greenhouse.

Build a model refrigerator and air conditioner to learn about heat transfer. Experiment with a lemon battery to learn about power storage.

Set up a wind turbine to generate electricity from the wind.


Giving Eco Gifts is a great idea because Green is Good - Eco Warriors

green gift ideas - eco presents
green gift ideas - eco presents

There are fabulous presents which teach our children to see how we can use alternatives and help save the valuable resources of our earth that are disappearing.

Help them to help our planet

Wind, Solar, Water

Every child is learning about our Enviroment, it is now part of the cirriculum, the impact we have on their earths resources, encouraging them in thinking more about how to use alternative resources.

These presents are educational and fun projects which are simple and easy enough that they can make themselves or work together with you on.

The Fuel Cell 10 Car and Experiment Kit provides a hands-on introduction to one of the most significant technologies of the early 21st century. With this kit, you can build a model car that actually runs on water. Recently redesigned, this 10th Anniversary Edition includes a completely redesigned car, millimeter, solar panel, and manual.

Educational and FUN Scientific Gift Ideas 2. - Alternative Energy and Environmental - Eco Cars? how do they work

Educational and FUN Scientific Gift Ideas Wind Power

Wind Turbines

You can Build a working wind turbine to harness power out of thin air. Wind energy has been used for centuries to pump water and crush grain in windmills, and is now increasingly being used to generate electricity to power our modern world.

there are 20 experiments,

Use the wind turbine to generate mechanical power to lift a heavy weight or generate electricity to light up an LED and charge a rechargeable battery.Discover how the sun makes the wind, providing us with an endless source of energy

Educational and FUN Scientific Gift Ideas 5. - Solar energy

Teaches how to capture the Suns Energy

* Building these projects teach the benefits of solar energy while having fun

* Build six different working models including an airboat, windmill, puppy and two different planes

* OWI is the premier line of educational electronics and robotics kits

In one way or another, almost every form of energy we use originates as energy from the sun. Solar energy directly powers photovoltaic cells and thermal collectors. By building 12 models and conducting 30 experiments, you will learn how solar cells transform light into electrical energy, and how motors and mechanical devices can optimize the work done by this energy.

You will build different types of vehicles and machines to demonstrate how gears can convert and transform power for different needs. There are 320 parts, which are also compatible with the other kits in our Physics line

Educational and FUN Scientific Gift Ideas. - Solar Power Technology in Action - Suitable for Age 8+ years

The Thames ; Kosmos Fuel Cell Car and Experiment Kit provides a playful introduction to one of the most significant technologies of the early 21st Century. With this kit you can build a model car that actually runs on water.
Now that we have your attention, roll up your sleeves and find out more through experiments and demonstrations you can do on your own,
With this unique kit, you can build your own experimental reversible fuel cell car to learn more about this energy source.

Educational and FUN Scientific Gift Ideas. - Build a Car that runs on Water - great gift idea for any body who loves cars and how they work!

Educational and FUN Scientific Gift Ideas 4. Wind Powered micro Car

Wind Powered Car

Fascinating how wind can generate enough power to make the car go.

Eco-Racers wind powered remote controlled green energy remote control micro car. Introducing a brand new line of fast and fun RC mirco-cars that run on clean energy! The Wind Power Eco-Racer is a remote controlled micro car that comes with a real working miniature wind turbine that is able to charge the car using natural energy from the wind. The micro-car also comes with a neat docking station, a remote control, assembly guide and cool poster on how wind turbines really work.

Educational and FUN Scientific Gift Ideas. - Weather Station

Make their own Weather Station

A fanatstic gift for those concerned with the greenhouse effect.

Observe and record the weather with your own multi-functional weather station. The kit features a wind vane, and anemometer, a themometer and a rain gauge. Also experiment with the greenhouse effect and create a terrarium in a bottle.
