Of course we all love science, but you can't just DO science without a good set of tools! What are you gonna use to make tiny things bigger or control fire? You need the tools of the trade if you're going to science! So we thought we'd give you a quick run down of some of the classics!
The Beaker - Our triangular beaker is sometimes called an Erlenmeyer flask, named for the German organic chemist who designed it in 1861. Because he did a lot of stirring and swishing, he wanted a flask that could be swirled by hand and not have any risk of spilling. the flat bottom also made it easy to simply place on a heating element.
The Bunsen Burner - Designed in 1854 by Peter Desaga and Robert Bunsen, this iconic piece of equipment is used in multiple branches of chemistry, producing an easily controlled, hot, smoke-less flame. It has been so successful that the design remains largely unchanged for this day. If you need the perfect S'more...
The Periodic Table - Coming into being some 200 years ago, the Periodic Table is unique in that this single chart contains an immense amount of our knowledge of chemistry. It has been constantly improved since its inception, and the patterns it displays while showing the atomic information of the elements has clearly pointed the direction for future discoveries. One of the most iconic symbols of science in the world today. And helps you avoid memorizing a LOT of information.
The Petri Dish - Created in 1887 by Julius Petri for keeping specimens of growing bacteria sterile, as well as visible. Before the creation of this glassware various hodgepodge solutions were being used, such as keeping samples under heavy jugs or even leaving them in the open air. Hardly a good base sample. The design has stayed essentially the same to this very day.
Another Beaker! - We just wanted to draw a spherical one and beakers are so helpful having two is nice. This is the round-bottom flask, which is shaped this way to allow it to more evenly distribute heat throughout whatever liquid is contained within. This is useful when boiling liquids, creating evaporates, and other mad-scientist stuff.
The Microscope - The technology to make microscopes has been around since the 14th century, with the first set of spectacles made in in Italy. While we used them for corrective lenses for awhile, we put two and two together (multiple lens pun) and created the first working microscope in 1590. This is when we discovered bacteria were a thing. This tool has been a staple of science ever since.
Get that Science done! Explode stuff and feed bugs and shoot lasers! Also find solutions and discard precipitates. Be prepared with your best set of tools!

Add a pleasant twist to your morning routine with this glossy magic mug. It appears black when cold, but reveals a vibrant print when exposed to hot liquids. That makes this mug a wonderful gift for your family or friends. Mug will have black handle due to printing technique.
• Ceramic • Black glossy finish when cold • Reveals the print when exposed to hot liquids • Dimensions: height - 3.54'' (8.9 cm), diameter - 3.35" (8.5 cm)
Note that in some instances the coating might not be 100% opaque and an outline of the design might peek through a little. You shouldn't put mugs in a microwave or dishwasher since it can damage the coating.
