2022 Top Science Gifts for Passionate Geeks

As someone who totally geeks out over anything superheroes, anime and pop culture I can say that anyone in my life would vouch that it is super difficult to buy me gifts during the holidays or birthdays. However, there are many different factions of geeks out there; some are harder to buy for than others.


2022 Top Science Gifts for Serious Hobbyists

Everyone has at least one hobby they are obsessed with and tries to get their friends and family into, and these products are no exception. You won’t find these products in just any store like Walmart or Target and instead are gauged towards hobbyists that feel as though they have everything they could ever want. Surprise! At Scientifics Direct we encourage any products that are outside the box and can still bring excitement and joy to any serious hobbyist of the following categories who would happily show them off.


2022 Top Science Gifts: Classics/ Bestsellers

Science comes in so many different forms, some of which have been around for years and years. This list has some of Scientific Direct’s bestsellers from over the years and some classic toys that are recreated in order to give you or whom you gift a brand-new experience. This list will involve all ages and a collection of toys, games and kits that will entertain you and make you think.


2022 Top Science Gifts for 5 and Up

At the age of 5 your children will be entering school, so why not gift them the joy of learning about coding, chemistry, history, engineering and many other topics? Of course, we want children to still enjoy their time of play while striving to build their creativity so I have created a list that balances all of the above. Help them grow familiar with STEM principles to assist their learning in the classroom and give them a head start in front of the other kids.


2022 Top Science Gifts for 8 and Up

As children get older and begin learning more about the world and science in school they begin to pick up hobbies or toys that reflect those teachings. However, it is not always easy to find a gift for an 8-year-old that may not even know what they want. This list of products will help you find different toys, games and other STEM kits that any kid will be entertained by (while also being educational without them even knowing it).


2022 Top Science Gifts for 10 and Up

Once a child reaches the double digits gift buying for them becomes way harder. Are they too old for this? Are they too young for this? At this young age, they are still growing and need sources to keep their mind active in a fun and educational way. I have compiled a list of games, toys and experiments for all of the nieces/nephews, children and/or grandchildren you are buying for this holiday season that are age appropriate but still fun and exciting!


2022 Top Science Gifts for Teens

Teenagers are sometimes the hardest to buy for around the holidays. Either they don’t tell you what they want at all or they give you a list that sometimes you can’t even comprehend. Of course, they are in the know about all the new trends and you may have no idea why they are asking for certain items. Well, let this list be your safe haven of gift ideas to get 5 different types of teens in your life.


2022 Top Science Gifts for Adults

The older you get the less exciting gifts sometimes become, we are given household items or even gift cards (nothing wrong with those) but to be gifted something that wows our inner child is a special gift indeed. I’ve compiled a list of five categories of unique gifts for any adult in your life. Do you know a model builder, tech geek or budding chemist? They’ll be sure to love to receive any of the following items this holiday season.


A Tale of Two Meteor Showers

October hosts two displays of “shooting stars” each year—one hardly worth mentioning and the other definitely worth watching. The first to appear this month is largely unknown to skywatchers. The second one is eagerly looked forward to, especially given the typically clear skies and pleasant fall temperatures for being outdoors at night.


Fall Asterisms

Each of the four seasons of the year brings with it a characteristic geometric pattern in the sky. These “asterisms” as they are called often are composed of stars in two or more of the constellations (including our featured one this month). One exception—and perhaps the best-known of all asterisms— is the Big Dipper, which can actually be seen year-round. It’s part of Ursa Major, the great bear of the sky.
