Physiology / Anatomy Models
With some science experiments you will need a model to illustrate your science fair experiment. These are really very reasonably prices ones. You can find them on our life science experiments page.

The suggested age range of the science kits listed on this site is based on information supplied by a manufacturer. Many manufacturers are specific about which ages are best for a particular item, while others display age ranges based on safety information and restrictions alone.

While the suggested age range is based on the manufacturer's recommendation, we consider it important that the parent be the final decision maker because you can more readily assess your child's developmental skills.
