The award winning ScienceWiz line got its start in 1995 when we released our first title ScienceWiz Electricity. Our line of science kits stemmed from Dr. Penny Norman's volunteer work teaching science in her children's elementary schools and her ScienceWiz after school and summer programs. With initial development supported by grants from the National Science Foundation and the Franklin Foundation, each of our kits is created with the goal of teaching fundamental scientific concepts to children through hands-on play. From our offices in El Sobrante, CA we work hard towards our goal of providing children a basic foundation in science. Each new title we release is focused on a distinct topic. With so many disciplines in science, our work may never be finished!

Product Description: The POOF-Slinky 07452 Slinky Science Our Amazing Mummies Model Kit brings out the science and art of creating your very own mummy while learning early history and how mummies eventually evolved to the movie screen. The most famous Egyptian mummies belong to kings. The death of a king involved thousands of thousands of workers. Embalmers mummified the king’s body and wrapped the body in miles of linen bandages. The head was then covered with a mask of gold and his body was laid inside a gold coffin. Then they placed that coffin in side another, larger coffin-and that one inside still a larger coffin. All (3) coffins went inside a stone box (called a sarcophagus). This set includes a 48-page science manual that features (8) activities with step-by-step instructions to experience a ritual more than 5,000 years old by casting a coffin and mummy in plaster, and then wrapping, painting and displaying your mummy in your very own sarcophagus box, just like it would have been centuries ago. This activity set lets you discover the fascinating history of mummies and makes a great history or science project. This kit includes a (2) piece sarcophagus, paint guide, (2) bags of plaster, (2) piece mummy mold, (2) piece mummy coffin, mummy mask, paint set, paintbrush, (2) pieces of sandpaper, muslin, (8) rubber bands, (7) craft sticks and a 48-page science and instruction manual. This Slinky Science Mini Lab is experiment number 156 of a series of science kits that combine the elements of learning and fun to provide hours of educational entertainment.

Parenting Tip: If your gifted child enjoys life sciences, you can have fun at his or her next birthday party. Instead of serving regular ol' birthday party food, try altering the food a little. Use food coloring to change the color of food to illustrate how our eyes send signals to the brain about the edibility of food.
For example, if you're going to serve hotdogs, soak them first for a couple of hours (in the fridge) in green water mixed with lots of green food coloring. Watch the kids' faces when you serve green hotdogs! You can do the same kind of thing with french fries (try blue or red) and milk (try blue). You can even dye spaghetti!
If you want to try blue hamburgers, you have to get ground turkey meat. That takes the dye nicely and the kids really can't tell a big difference in flavor.
During the meal, you can discuss why we don't want to eat food that is the "wrong" color. (Brain says it's bad, spoiled food!) For a real treat, serve a nice brain, hand, or heart for dessert! It's jello, of course!
Amazon.com has great molds for brain, heart and hand jello!
FYI: Did you know that "forensics" is really a legal term? It refers to the use of science and technology to discover and prove facts in court. So forensic chemistry, for example, is just the application of chemistry to the evidence in a court case as a way to interpret some of that evidence. The goal of forensic science is to gather scientific evidence that will prove a crime has occurred as well as who committed it.
