Sources of Supplies
the Supplies Page!
Most of the experiments and projects on this site can be
done using materials found around the house, or are readily
available from one or more of the following local stores:
"Big box" store such as Wal-Mart
Consumer electronics store such as RadioShack
Education or teacher supply store
Museum stores - but you'll pay full price
And our all time favorite, the local "dollar store"
Once in a while you may
decide you want to do a little more and will need to order
equipment or supplies that are not available locally.
There are many online stores that sell science sets,
equipment and supplies, so unless you are looking for
something a whole lot more dangerous than what is used in
experiments here, you should have very little problem
finding a supplier.
suppliers listed below are ones that The Science Notebook staff has used in the
past. None of these suppliers are advertisers or sponsors
of this site, so feel free to shop around on your own.

Home Science Tools - This company is
targeted toward home schoolers and others interested in
science, and has a wide variety of science equipment and
chemicals. They sell in small quantities and their
prices are very reasonable. In addition, they sell
all kinds of science kits. If you can't find what
you need locally, this is a great place to start!
This company sells microscopes, telescopes, lab equipment
and chemicals. It carries some of the harder to find
equipment and chemicals and is also a good source if you
can't find something locally.
- This is Edmund
Scientific's online science supply site. It has a
lot of unique items, as well as some real classics. If you
want something unusual, you'll probably find it here.
However, their prices are generally higher than the
suppliers shown above for general science equipment and
supplies, so compare before you buy.
