Are STEM (science/technology/engineering/math) subjects are a favorite in your homeschool? Do your children truly enjoy nature study? Is a child showing an interest in deeper STEM study? If so, then you are likely looking for science tools and resources that go beyond the cheap plastic chemistry sets and play bug nets available at most toy stores.
Every homeschool family that wants to expand or extend any branch of STEM study should be on the mailing list for the following science resource catalogs listed below.
We love to get all four of these catalogs in the mail! My children love to mark the pages with kits or equipment that looks exciting to them. I’ll readily admit that I’ve marked up these science catalogs as well, with all the science curriculum kits, materials and supplements that I’d like to use. I have ordered curriculum materials, lab equipment, microscope slides, dissections sets, etc. from these companies and have been nothing but satisfied.
The links take you to the catalog request portion of each site, but these companies also have online catalogs as well for immediate browsing.
Both Nasco and Carolina also offer specialty catalogs for specific subject areas such as chemistry, agriculture or early learning.
Do you know of another science resource catalog that would benefit homeschool families? Please tell us about it in the comments below.
