Things of Science #218 — Motor

MotorThings of Science unit from December, 1958. The motor was not in the unit I purchased on eBay. This unit seems nonetheless to be a little light on the science, heavier on the things. While no doubt a young boy (probably a boy) would have been excited to receive this unit so close to Christmas, I am beginning to believe Things of Science really came into its own later during the 1970’s — really came to be more about science.

Here is the booklet:

Things of Science #277 — Yeast From Trees

Things of Science unit from 1963. A lot of the early Things of Science units appear to be about materials. Copper, Silk, Cotton — just to name a few. Although a little unusual this unit continues i that vein. Looking at the list of things that are supposed to be included, I may be missing some bits of wood, but otherwise the yeast appears to be there.

Things of Science (1969) — The Grasses

Things of Science LogoAnother Things of Science unit that contained seeds. In fact, this particular one I got off of eBay has the seeds from 1969. Cool.

And now, thanks to this unit, I know what sorghum is.

Things of Science (1969) — Taste

Things of Science (1969) — Gravity

GravityI assumed a Things of Science unit on gravity would be thin, but I forgot about pendulums, ellipses, etc. Things of Science didn’t forget. A 32-page booklet is evidence of the amount of information squeezed into this (another excellent) unit.
