"Arduino is a tool for making computers that can sense and control more of the physical world than your desktop computer. It's an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple microcontroller board, and a development environment for writing software for the board."--Arduino.cc website.
"LittleBits ... consists of tiny circuit-boards with specific functions engineered to snap together with magnets. No soldering, no wiring, no programming, just snap together for prototyping, learning and fun. Each bit has a specific function (light, sound, sensors, buttons, thresholds, pulse, motors, etc), and modules snap to make larger circuits. ... littleBits are small, simple, intuitive, blocks that make creating with sophisticated electronics a matter of snapping small magnets together."--LittleBits website.
MaKey MaKey is an invention kit for the 21st century. Turn everyday objects into touchpads and combine them with the internet. It's a simple Invention Kit for Beginners and Experts doing art, engineering, and everything in between.

"Liven up your whiteboards and put these giant, double-sided magnets in the hands of students! Assemble the pieces to create a skeleton over 3 feet (1 m) tall. Flip the magnets over to explore major organs and muscles of the body!"--Container. Includes: Skull, Torso (4 pieces), Upper arms (2), Lower arms (2), Hands (2), Upper legs (2), Lower legs (2), Feet (2)
Includes wall charts on the following topics: The Human Body; Nutrition; Digestive System; Respiratory System - Circulatory System; Skeletal System; Muscular System; Senses - Nervous System; Endocrine Systems - - Reproductive Systems; Human Development
This detailed model with removeable organs is designed for the study of human anatomy.
This 12 part, 50 cm sexless human torso is appropriate for use in any classroom. This torso shows the major body systems and many anatomical features are numbered or lettered, which can be identified using the accompanying key card.--Walter Products Inc. website. Contents: 12-parts include:
Torso, 2-part head, 2-part heart, ½ brain, 2 lungs, Stomach, Liver, Large & small intestines, Cecum cover Sheet: Key card.
Adult human skeleton model for physiological study. Upper and lower extremities with movable joints for demonstration purposes. Spinal column depicts spinal cord, nerve exit, vertebral arteries, and herniated disc for detailed examination. The model is made of plastic for durability and mounted on a base for stability. Key for instructional use.
The set includes 108 balls representing atoms, each colour-coded by element and with a number of holes corresponding to the valency of the specific atom. Designed to demonstrate the molecular structure of various elements and organic and inorganic compounds, by connecting balls using the various links. There are 38 medium gray links representing single covalent bonds, 41 long flexible gray links for double or triple bonds, and 14 medium purple links for contrast in certain cases. Also includes 6 lone pair electron lobes and 12 unhybridised p-lobes (flat, pear-shaped pieces). Chemical structures are outlined in the instruction booklet.
A series of charts for use in science classes from upper elementary school through junior college. Intended to help students build an understanding of major, recurring themes such as change over time, energy, cycles, movement, forces, systems, structures, scale and stability.
