C&A Scientific is a family and minority-owned business based out of Sterling, Virginia. The company has specialized in developing and manufacturing medical equipment and science education supplies for over 30 years. By doing so, they have helped improve the health and education of patrons worldwide. We have child-friendly microscope specimens from C&A Scientific to help make learning fun and interesting, along with a telescope for children who love to stargaze.
Two of the microscope sample packs, the pack of rocks and the pack of minerals, have ten samples for junior scientists to examine. The rock pack features diorite, rhyolite, andesite, obsidian, conglomerate, shale, limestone, schist, slate, and marble, while the mineral pack features quartz, hematite, limonite, psilomelane, calcite, malachite, talc, apatite, barite, and peat turf. There’s also a pack of twelve household items on cardboard “slides” so that kids can examine the things they see around the house every day. These samples include salt, sugar, cotton, dog hair, a feather, human hair, the letter “e,” a brick, sand, pepper, a bee head/wing/leg, and a tree leaf.
Mini astronomers will love the Early Astronomer Stargazer Telescope, featuring a portable design that makes stargazing easy no matter where you are. Any of our products from C&A Scientific make great gifts for elementary and middle school-age children. Still, if you’re a science teacher, you can also incorporate these fun, educational tools in a classroom setting.
