A great gift for a curious child, the Green Science Weather Station would also be beloved by climate enthusiasts. The compact kit comes complete with tiny versions of the essential tools for measuring everything from wind to water.

A transparent bottle at the base acts as a personal terrarium in which one can plant his own miniature garden to observe the greenhouse effect. Above, the contraption includes a test tube, a thermometer, a weathervane, a pluviometer to gauge rainfall and an anemometer to measure the wind. Each instrument is fastened tightly to the others to give the Green Science Weather Station a condensed setup, allowing the user to access all apparatuses at once, and save space for storage and portability.
