How does one display scientific discoveries, especially those lesser ones that are only important to the discoverer, say, those under the age of eight?
Behold! A bunch of drawers, er, the Discovery Box. This discovery box featured in the link actually comes equipped with its own shells, rocks, bugs, and other assorted science-y things. But what a great idea to buy something similar – the big box stores (no pun intended) sell everything from cardboard shoe shelves to wooden dressers – and either make one for them, or if your child is a collector they can keep their feathers and rocks in these little drawers, saving shelf space and in a location where their younger sibling or the dog won’t try to eat it, yet still “display” or at least “save” their scientific data. The young scientist can decorate it as he or she deems fit, and even create and re-create their own scientific classifications.
