The classic home crystal growing experiment kit is a staple of science fairs and STEM kids, but who are we kidding? Plenty of grown-ups like to putter around creating crystal growths too. For about twenty bucks, you can relive the magic of growing rocks in your free time, an activity defiantly analogue and sedate in our hyper-stimulated digital world.
Selected by the University of Cambridge, this kit includes growing pods and instructions for a variety of crystals. Look at it this way: These are houseplants you can’t possibly kill!
