The Space Place logo
Image The Space Place NASA Gov
"The Space Place was started in February 1998 as an education and public outreach project of NASA's New Millennium Program, which continues to be its primary supporter. Its target audience is elementary-school-age kids. The Space Place have wanted to reach this young audience with the message that science and technology and learning about space are fun and within their grasp. The Space Place is designed with a kid-friendly look and feel. It is modular, so visitors can pick and choose different standalone projects or activities that interest them at the moment.

Not many sites about space science and technology are written specifically for kids. This one is and does not link out to other sites that are not written for kids. In addition, it is non-commercial, free, and avoids the sensory overload of flashing advertisements and irrelevant popup windows.

It leads the visitor one small step at a time through subjects that people might consider too difficult for a lay person, let alone a child. Challenging subjects such as the electromagnetic spectrum, conservation of momentum, orbits, gravitational waves, tidal forces, binary and hexadecimal notation, and interferometry are treated simply and concisely, with everyday analogies and metaphors, concrete examples, and compelling illustrations.

PicoturbineAdvancing Green Energy Science for All Ages

"At PicoTurbine International, we are passionate about the power of renewable energy. This is not just in terms of contributing to a healthier, greener planet. We believe that providing high-quality, affordable educational products and curriculum is a major key to empowering learners of all ages. By strengthening interpersonal relationships, providing endless hours of enjoyment and bringing families together, PicoTurbine serves as a catalyst to change education for the better.

Founded in 1998, PicoTurbine International began as a small family business. The company quickly became known amongst a small circle of science enthusiasts as a passionate provider of green energy educational materials. Focused on making only the highest quality products and providing customers with exemplary service, the fledgling company was met with respect and appreciation from educators, hobbyists and students alike. In the early days, the company built things slowly and steadily—one phone call, email, or question answered at a time. PicoTurbine fostered and nurtured relationships with customers one by one.

In 2008, Michael Burghoffer acquired PicoTurbine after working for the company for nine years. Things began to pick up the pace and soon our little family of renewable energy enthusiasts began to expand more quickly than ever. Teachers were spreading the word about our products to their colleagues. Hobbyists began sharing the joys of our science kits with one another. Students were responding to the PicoTurbine experience with positivity and curiosity—fascinated by what they were learning and hungry to learn more.

We’re proud of what we’ve become—a worldwide leader of renewable energy education products and education. But although our family has grown, we’ve held onto the same ideal we began with—service. To our customers, and to our cause of advancing green energy education." ... more
HearthSong logo
"Since its beginning in 1983, HearthSong has been committed to helping parents follow their instincts to provide their children with age-appropriate, wholesome, quality playthings. That's because at HearthSong, we believe childhood is a vital chapter in life-a special time when children can be occupied with the joy of being children. And, equally importantly, a time when children need to experience as much creative, imaginative play as possible because kids experience so many of life's first lessons through play.

The first HearthSong catalog was printed in black and white, with pencil drawings of carefully selected toys and books and mailed from the home of founder Barbara Kane by her family. The name HearthSong was chosen to reflect core family values - the Hearth, a traditional symbol for the center of the home, and Song, a symbol of family spirit and of a special playfulness that parents and children enjoy together.

Over the next 25 years, HearthSong evolved into a nationally known and respected source for quality children's toys, games and crafts. Parents who found unique toys for their children decades ago tell us they're now thrilled to be finding the same kinds of educational, entertaining toys to give to their children's children.

Our selection of products has grown and expanded too. But we can still guarantee that each item is carefully selected for its quality, safety, and relevance to your child's development - and we are steadfast in our commitment to provide you with Toys You'll Feel Good About Giving® " ... more

Fat Brain Toys Image "As you peruse Fat Brain Toys, you may find something missing. In fact, if you're accustomed to the toy selection found at most stores, you may find lots of items missing.

But what you will find instead are THOUSANDS of quality, open-ended toys, games, and gifts that entertain AND educate.

For nearly nine years, we've been carefully choosing the best toys from around the world in addition to aquiring the single largest selection of American-made toys found anywhere. But our unparalleled selection of quality toys is but one of many reasons that makes Fat Brain Toys unique:

Brain Building Toys logoBrain Building Toys logoBrain Building Toys logo
Brain Building Toys Image"Brain Building Toys was founded by two educators, Kelly and Tyler Webster. Their combined 25 years of teaching and enthusiasm for child development lead them to creating an online educational toy store. They felt they could reach more families through the internet than a brick and mortar establishment (and they have a child to test the products).

Kelly and Tyler have studied educational philosophies such as Montessori, Piaget, and Steiner (Waldorf) to name a few. Kelly is a Montessorian by nature and is very active in the AMI (Association Montessori Internationale) society. They are continuously educating themselves and believe education is what creates true motivated free thinkers.

For those of you who have been loyal customers from the beginning (thank you) you will know that Brain Building Toys only started with a few educational toys and educational games. This is because Kelly and Tyler are very methodical and meticulous when it comes to buying the right toys and games for your children. One of their main criteria is Quality over quantity and they want to make sure you and your children will enjoy and learn from their educational toys and educational games. All children need smart toys!" ... more

Thinking Maps logo
Our Mission
"Thinking Maps, Inc. is committed to improving the quality of teaching and learning through the effective implementation of Thinking Maps in schools and school districts around the world. Through quality training, materials and support services, we will equip learning communities with the tools necessary to become successful thinkers, problem solvers, decision makers, and ultimately, lifelong learners.

What are Thinking Maps & How Do They Work?
Thinking Maps, developed by Dr. David Hyerle, are visual teaching tools that foster and encourage lifelong learning. They are based on a simple yet profound insight: The one common instructional thread that binds together all teachers, from pre-kindergarten through postgraduate, is that they all teach the same thought processes.

Based on thorough and well-accepted academic study and brain research, the eight Thinking Map tools correspond with eight fundamental thinking processes. More than simple task-specific graphic organizers, our tools can be utilized individually or in various combinations to form a Common Visual Language for students and teachers at all grade levels, in all subjects." ... more

Holgate Toys logo
Holgate Toys image"1789 was the year America's Constitution was signed and George Washington became the country's first President. It was also the year Cornelius Holgate established a woodworking shop on the outskirts of Philadelphia in the Colonial town of Roxborough.. .we have been in continuous operation ever since! Through the generations, our company has made numerous wooden products for home, farm and industry.

Shortly after the Civil War, Holgate moved to Kane, Pennsylvania, to be near the area's abundant hardwood forests. In 1929, our company expanded its product line by making educational pre-school wooden toys. Holgate's early toy designer was Jarvis Rockwell, brother of famous illustrator Norman Rockwell who visited the Holgate factory on several occasions. Jarvis Rockwell's concern for safety, durability and educational play earned him recognition as America's premier toy designer during this period.

With the great consumer success of its toys, Holgate began concentrating on this segment of it's business. Today Holgate is synonymous with toys... and still making the finest wooden toys in America. Our factory is now located in Bradford, Pennsylvania, still in the middle of America's premier hardwood forests. Today, Holgate is recognized as the premier maker of children's wooden toys in America." ... more

TouchMath logo
TouchMath"You can use the TouchMath program to give young children a head start, supplement a grade-level curriculum (pre-K–3), provide enrichment activities and reinforcement, and achieve the best possible outcomes for students with special needs. TouchMath is an intuitive process, designed by and for young learners.

The secret to TouchMath is simple. In fact, it can be summed up in one word: TouchPoints.
Each numeral from 1 through 9 has TouchPoints corresponding to the digit's value.

- Numerals 1 through 5 have single TouchPoints
- Numerals 6 through 9 have double TouchPoints
- As students count the TouchPoints, they associate numerals with real values. They learn that a numeral (3, for instance) is not just a squiggle on a page. It represents a quantity such as three apples, three ladybugs, three buttons or three TouchPoints.

Touching/Counting Patterns
Students count aloud as they touch the single TouchPoints once and double TouchPoints twice. This multisensory approach engages students on auditory, visual and tactile/kinesthetic levels.

To ensure that students arrive at the right answer, it is important that they touch the TouchPoints in the correct Touching/Counting Pattern for each numeral." ... more
