The holiday season is fast approaching, so here at OMGTech! HQ we thought we'd help out the parents with some AWESOME gift ideas. If you have any other amazing #steam ideas please comment below!
- One of the most exciting kiwi ideas has to be the Painting with Bacteria Kit from Brightenz. When you get it, you can create your own living glow in the dark art, with bacteria!
- If you've got a reader on your hands, they would love the Good Night Stories series. Here in Aotearoa, you'll have to get it from a local reseller (instead of off their website), we can suggest Unity Books. The book introduces you to over a hundred remarkable women and their extraordinary lives.
- There are HEAPS of cool science and technology gifts at Mighty Ape for under $10 like the awesome Brainbox car!
- For those that love our Robotics workshop, you should definitely check out Mindkits. Tim and his team were the ones that built our robots for us, and you can get a wee robot of your own at home. They are selling the Edison, which is fully compatible with Lego!
- If you have several kids to shop for, you'll find loads to ponder at the Science Alive Science Shop. From Newtonian Putty to Pocket Volcanoes, there is a massive range of STEAM toys to pick and choose.
- If it is our Science workshop that really captured your kid's imagination, then you'll want to look no further than Dr Michelle Dickinson's Kitchen Science Cookbook. It is live on Kickstarter right now. In fact, she created our science workshop originally, so you will find the recipe for some of our experiments too!
- If your kid is more into electronics, then Jaycar has a huge range of #STEAM kits just for you. We especially love the Solar powered grasshopper... she's so cute!
- Or check out the cool range of STEAM toys at PBTech! Like the awesome Makey Makey, one of our favourites as it turns anything into a computer!
