Hi,I’d like to know the price of the 35mm clear film canister. I need 1000 pcs.
Please feel free to email me and I can work up a quote for you. We typically sell them in packs of 12 or 144. Tami@teachersource.com
i am looking for a plastic ball that can has air in it and that can suck in water when placed in a bowl and that can push the water out and refill with air so as to demonstrate a fish air bladder. do you know of such a product and where i may find it?
Educational Innovations does not carry the product you are describing, however, I have heard about that type of ball. Let me do a little research, and if I find anything, I’ll get back to you.
I found your UV light activity and was wondering if it would be successful right now, in the middle of february. My room faces North, so I want to put the posters somewhere else outside. Thanks 🙂
Hi Jenny, I’m not 100% positive, but my guess is that even with the angle of the winter sun, it should work just fine. I would be inclined to put one small baggie with newsprint out tomorrow just to see if the sun is strong enough to fade the paper. Please let us know how it works.

I have lost the names for the colors of the samples in the DEN-200 Density Mystery Set. I have the names and the densities, but can not match to the color of the samples. I have lost the sheet that came with the set. Is there anyway you could fax or email that info to me?
Thank you so much for your help.

On its way to you! Let us know if there’s anything else we can do for you!
Am looking for goldenrod paper that actually changes in ammonia…everything I’ve tried doesn’t work.
Hi Jody, our goldenrod paper changes from bright orange to red when sprayed with ammonia (actually, bases in general). We sell our paper in packages containing 100 sheets for $9.95.

I am intrigued by your new product, air swimmers, but haven’t figured out any ways to use them in lessons. The description mentions possibilities for teaching about density, buoyancy, and propulsion. Has anyone reported in yet on how they’ve used the swimmers for specific lessons? I’m a bit leery on how the students might hog the controls and use the swimmers for goofing off (like in your video) rather than learning about science principles. Any comments?
Hi Rick, we haven’t heard from anyone yet, but before Air Swimmers came out, I used to inflate a clear kitchen garbage bag with helium and then float a helium balloon inside of it to show that the balloon only floated to the bottom layer of helium, just above the air. Density was one of my favorite topics when teaching. I would advise you to do the controlling at first, have the kids identify the science behind the fish, and those that could explain what was happening gets a turn with the controller. It would be a great motivator! If you’re looking for ideas, give the office a call and I’ll share some of the things I did in my classroom.
Wow. Just came across the Teachers Serving Teachers blog. Great resource! I will share it with other teachers and spend time checking it out over the summer. Thanks so much for hosting it.
It’s our pleasure, Maureen. We typically add two new posts each month! Enjoy!
I’ve been ordering from Educational Innovations for years but just realized your company has a blog! So happy I found it! I am a science teacher teaching students in grades PK – 4. I just did a blog post on one of my favorite Educational Innovations products! Here is the post:
Is there some way I can have new blog posts emailed to me rather than just adding it to my RSS Feed (which has >1000 blogs on it!) I see it says sign up for newsletter – is that new blog posts or something entirely different?
Thanks for blogging about some of our products! It’s always nice to see how other teachers use our materials in their classrooms. Your blog is very well done, thank you for sharing it with us. We don’t currently have a way to email our postings out to our customers, but we could potentially send an email once a month to highlight our latest blogs. I will bring that up at one of our managers’ meetings to see if there’s interest. Thanks for asking, and enjoy the rest of your school year.
Are the self-inflating balloons $6.95 each or do they come in packs of 3 or 4?
The self-inflating balloons are $6.95 for a pack of four. There are two colored and two clear.
I would like to order the Nikola Tesla Bobblehead. I noticed that you are out of them. Do you know when you will get more in? I am a huge Tesla fan and this would be a great addition to my class.
Unfortunately, our supplier has discontinued the Nikola Tesla Bobble head. Our apologies.

Brian Herrin’s lesson on Chemical spills was excellent. I actually am involved i teaching first graders thru 8th graders and see this lesson being applicable to all of those ages.
Glad you liked it! Please let us know how it turned out for you and your students.
I wanted to talk to someone about making a clock face for students that I work with. Who can I contact to talk about that?
