We have a selected number of quality science kits that we are able to loan out to our members. These can be hired for two weeks. A refundable deposit of £10 is required for each kit.

The kits include chemistry set, electronics and magnetism and microscopes.

Please order and pay for your kit below (make sure you are logged in). Kits can be collected and returned at our Wednesday meetups. If this is not possible for you, please contact us to make alternative arrangements.

If you would like to purchase your own kit, BrightMinds offer BAHE members a discount on their products. Please visit the discount page for more information.

 

Chemistry C500

Learn about reactions between solids, liquids, and gases. Discover the colourful effects of acids and bases. Perform astonishing “magic” tricks for your friends. Make fizzy and foamy reactions. Write messages with invisible ink. Investigate metals and salts in electrochemical experiments with a 9-volt battery (not included). Learn for yourself how chemistry goes far beyond textbooks and laboratories to explain occurrences that happen around us every day. The 48-page, full-colour experiment manual gives simple instructions for setting up and performing each experiment, and then clear explanations of what happened and why. This kit is ideal for children who are interested in chemistry but who are not yet ready for a more advanced chemistry set. It serves as an excellent introduction to other chemistry sets.

Electricity & Magnetism

Conduct more than 60 electrifying experiments with circuits and magnetic contraptions to learn about electricity and magnetism, and how these two fundamental properties are closely related. Children eight and up can safely and easily experiment with electric current and magnetic fields using the colourful snap-together blocks and components in this hands-on kit. Build series and parallel circuits to light up a light bulb. Experiment with push buttons and on-off switches. Assemble circuits that include a spinning motor, two switches, and up to three light bulbs. Conduct tests to see which materials are magnetic. Learn about the force of magnetism and magnetic poles. Magnetise a metal. Use iron fillings to make invisible magnetic fields visible. Investigate magnetic force and direction with a magnetic pendulum device. Learn how a compass works and about Earth’s magnetic fields. Conduct a series of experiments with a sturdy electromagnet. Finally, put everything you have learned to good use by constructing a loudspeaker, an electromagnetic relay switch, and a morse code telegraph key. The components are specially designed to make learning fun and accessible. The electrical blocks fit together with simple plug and- socket connectors. Because the blocks are brightly coloured and have unique shapes, it is easy to follow the assembly diagrams to construct functional devices. The 64-page, full-colour experiment manual guides you through experiments with easy-to-follow diagrams.

My First Biology Lab

Discover the science of living things with this complete introductory microscope kit. The beautifully illustrated experiment manual guides you through observations of many living specimens found in and around your home: onion cells, pond water, chloroplasts, plant stem cross sections, microorganisms, mouth cells, meat cells, different types of hair and fur, dust mites, bugs, pollen in honey, and much more. See how an onion cell shrivels and how an earthworm wiggles. Analyse the differences between the hair on your head and the sheep’s hair in your wool sweater. The kit includes three prepared specimens on a slide, four blank slides, cover slips, tweezers, needle, section slicing tool, and vial. Learn how to use these tools to prepare slides and how to use the microscope to examine them. Investigate how the lenses in a microscope bend light to magnify images. The ocular lens, or eyepiece lens, of the microscope has an adjustable 12x to 18x magnification power. When combined with the three objective lenses, this results in a total magnification power of 96x to 750x. It has a battery-powered light and a mirror to light up the specimens. The full-colour, 32-page manual covers microscope setup, usage, and many fascinating observations of biological specimens.
3D Printer
We also have a 3D printer available for hire. Because of the cost of replacement, a deposit of £50 will be required. Please contact us for further details.
