Things of Science #250 — Survival Food

Of course I didn’t eat it. But of course it crossed my mind.

Things of Science #249 — Synthetic Rubber

Things of Science unit from July, 1961. Unfortunately the booklet was not in pristine shape. The front page of the booklet looked literally moth eaten. Nonetheless, I scanned it and tried to clean it up as best I could.

Interesting bit of material science here. Some history, chemistry, and a bunch of rubber samples to test.

Things of Science #230 — Butterflies

Things of Science unit from December, 1959. This came in a collection off eBay with no description — I sort of bought them on faith. And here is one titled “Butterflies”. Please, don’t tell me there are butterflies in the unit.

Yep.

Here is the booklet:

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.
