Ultraviolet Detecting Beads
Our UV-sensitive beads contain a pigment which
changes color when exposed to ultraviolet light from the Sun or other
UV source. The pony beads are not, however, affected by visible light
and so will remain pale indoors, or when shielded from UV light as is
the case in most modern automobiles. Many of today's space telescopes
observe colors of light not in the visible spectrum such as infrared
and ultraviolet. Children can make a simple bracelet from a standard
pipe cleaner or strip of rawhide which can function as a UV detector.
Many other experiments are possible as well... test sunglasses for the
effectiveness of their UV protection, or even suntan lotion. We have
only just begun to discover the possibilities! Available in five
colors, all beads are pale, off-white in the absence of UV light. The
ultraviolet beads will cycle back and forth (to bright colors and back
again) over 50,000 times! Approximately 240 beads per package.
UV Filter Set
Set of two plastic disks, 7 cm (2.75") dia.; one
absorbs UV (A & B) Light, the other doesn't. Great for
experimentation with our UV Beads!
Rawhide, Perfect for Stringing Bead Bracelets
Our rawhide is perfect for stringing ultraviolet
detecting bead bracelets. More permanent than pipe cleaners, rawhide
gives all your students a neat way to show off their new ultraviolet
science lesson. Students of all ages have been seen wearing the UV
Detecting Rawhide Bracelets for months. Each yard makes 2 to 3 bracelets.
Extra Long Pipe Cleaners
An inexpensive way to string your beads.
UV Bead Bracelet/Necklace Making Kit
Contains 25 assorted UV-Beads and 1 yard of rawhide!
UV Outside Detector
This detector contains UV Detecting Beads inside of
a clear plastic bottle preform. When the detector is shielded from UV
radiation, the beads are white. When exposed to UV radiation (between
360 and 300 nm in wavelength), the beads turn purple. This detector can
change color thousands of times. Our favorite workshop give-away!

The Rainbow Fish - by Marcus Pfister
The Rainbow fish, with his coloring, glimmering
scales is far and away the most beautiful fish in the entire ocean, but
because of his vanity, he finds himself alone with no one to admire his
beauty. Watch as young readers delight in the wonderfully illustrated
book which teaches an important lesson to young and old alike. Extend
the literature connection to include science with our incredible
Ultraviolet Detecting Beads. Available while supplies last.
UV Nail Polish
Ultraviolet nail polish is clear gloss nail polish
combined with a special ultraviolet light-sensitive dye. UV nail polish
remains clear and colorless indoors. When exposed to ultraviolet light
from the sun (or other long-wave UV source), UV nail polish changes
color! The change is reversible, however, and when our UV Nail Polish
is removed from sunlight, the color disappears! Of course this product
is great for nails, but it can just as easily be painted on an index
card or acetate to make an ultraviolet light detector, great for many
ultraviolet light experiments! Don't miss our six bottle assortment
Nail Polish Set of 6 bottles
An assortment of our UV Sensative Nail Polish at a great price! Includes six bottles (Two of each color).
Spy Pen - Invisible Ink PenDid you read The Da Vinci Code?
With this incredible pen, write with invisible ink
and use the special, attached ultraviolet light at the other end to
read the message. The pen's UV light causes the ink to fluoresce in the
visible region. The use of such a pen was part of the plot in The Da
Vinci Code by Dan Brown. Use this pen to mark unknown samples for
students in the laboratory. Batteries included and replaceable. This
new product is sure to become one of our most popular... everyone we've
showed it to, wants one!
