Science Gallery Shop has a fantastic range of nerdy stocking fillers and geek chic gifts to get you through this festive season. Here are five that our shop guy Rob has chosen to give you some ideas for Christmas parties and family presents.
Our Science Gallery Ideas Notebook is a perfect place to write down your creative thoughts. Complete with a two-page 2012 calendar that includes the five exciting exhibitions we have planned for next year. Buy here €17
Science Gallery has a lot of hands-on, do-it-yourself science kits but none so complete as the DK Science Kit, which contains more than 100 experiments. Buy Here €25
This Mini Water Vortex Lamp from BlueSky Designs fits in great with our current exhibition. Its colour-changing LEDs make it a great indoor water feature. Available online. €25
Hack your fruit bowl. Turn a lemon into a battery and use it to power a small clock with the appropriately named Lemon Clock. Buy Here €6
We always end up playing with the cardboard boxes after Christmas anyway, so why not make sure it doubles up as an awesome, environmentally friendly robot-building kit. Box Robot brings the humble cardboard box to life. Buy Here €14
And a sneaky sixth option...
... if you spend €25 or more in Science Gallery shop in the run-up to Christmas, you'll get a free sample of Sugru - the silicone-based mouldable putty that air-dries at room temperature, it can be used to repair, modify, or improve almost anything! You can pick up a pack of Sugru in the shop or online for €14 (large) or €9 (small).
We're open Monday 8am-5pm, Tuesday-Friday 8am-8pm, Saturday and Sunday 12noon-6pm, and if you can't make it to the gallery, why not browse our online shop here.
