A Scientist's Holiday Wish List

On the hunt for the perfect gifts for friends and family who love exploring, experimenting and discovering new things about the universe we live in? We've got a few ideas in mind for scientists of any age. 


1) For the Space Explorer

What would be essential equipment for the space exlporer you know? Perhaps it would be an astronaut play set to act out a future adventure, a good astronomy read to learn about our night skies or a constellation scarf or necktie to proudly wear his or her love of science!

2) For the Dino Enthusiast

Rawrrr! Fossil kits, dinosaur ties and prehistoric pals are just a few things that might make a dinosaur enthusiast smile.

3) For Caffeine-Fuelled Discovery

Of course, any science adventure needs fuel. Coffee, tea or hot cocoa in an RMSC beaker or travel mug could be just the thing!

4) Choose Your Own Adventure

Gift certificates and memberships also make fantastic holiday gifts. Let your friends and family explore any RMSC experience they wish in the Science Museum, Strasenburgh Planetarium or Cumming Nature Center.
