I have some exciting surprises coming up for you and I want you to be the first to know when I make my announcements or plan secret happenings at the Workshop. If you use Facebook, be sure to "LIKE" my FB page so that you get advance notice of the fun.

Who am I, you say? Hmmm... I thought you knew
  See more about me here

Perhaps you and your family have had the opportunity to visit my home and discover my wacky and wonderful gizmos and gadgets. If you can't manage an outing in person, this virtual visit will have to do.

I have been very busy working on several inventions during my customary schedule of traveling through time and visiting other countries, so if you don't see me at the Workshop, you'll understand, I am sure.


The gift shop...
The Professor's little shop, Pennypickle's, is filled with unique and fascinating objects for your enjoyment and shopping pleasure. He is fond of time travel, of course, so you'll find some unusual clocks. Optics, magnets, and light sources are favorites, as well as science kits and implements including microscopes. Impulse items are everywhere, and most of them are only $5. Pennypickle's is pleased to offer complimentary personal shopping, gift wrapping, and shipping. Take a look...

Tell everyone there is a lot of stuff around here to help with Science Fair projects!
    Volunteers and Helpers:  
The staff and volunteers of the gift shop are the loves of the Professor's heart. If you would like to become one of these hearty souls, let us know, by all means! We really need helpers for our special events.
    Teachers and Scientists:  
You are very dear to Pennypickles. Please tell us if you have a distinctive discipline (anatomy, botany, geology, optics, etc.) that you would be willing to demonstrate at a special event. And don't forget to become a Pennypickle Partner to receive discounts, invitations (to parties and exclusive gatherings!), and other nifty perks.
  Some of the Professor's fascinating finds for the gift shop:
Who doesn't want to play with smoke rings?
Snow anytime... how cool is that!
Solar Bags
When only something really big will do...
