Your junior wizard

is motivated by the same goal as Albert Einstein and Madame Curie: to unlock the very secrets of the universe. Fervent curiosity and never-ending sense of wonder make your child question just about everything: "Do butterflies sleep?" "What happens when I mix ketchup, eggs, baking powder, vinegar, and pickle juice together?" "What existed before the beginning of the universe?" Happiness is an afternoon brewing up a potion, taking a magnifying glass to the garden, or building a rocket ship out of a cardboard box. Our list of 19 science-minded gifts will take your worldly wonderer to infinity… and beyond.
