The Science Bob Store began as a tiny home-based business created by science teacher, Bob Pﬂugfelder. It started as a place for fellow teachers and parents to purchase Bob's popular slime kits that he created and shared with thousands of students when he visited schools in Southern California. The business quickly grew and Bob has since designed several other products, and added hundreds more items from many great science supply companies. Best of all, Bob continues to test the quality of these products by quality checking with his own students that he teaches every day.
Bob's energy and passion for science caught the eye of some television producers, and he has become a regular guest on shows including Jimmy Kimmel Live, Live With Kelly & Michael, and The Dr. Oz Show. In 2010, he was invited by the Northrop Grummon Foundation to accompany 30 science teachers on a zero gravity ﬂight, but Bob had one request: "I want to release 2,000 ping pong balls in zero gravity." They agreed and the rest was aviation history.
We know there are a lot of great teachers out there with endless, creative ways that they use our products. More than ever, we want you to share those ideas by leaving reviews, sending pictures, and making videos that we can post to inspire other great teachers and parents. So look around, call with questions, and be a part of our new exciting science community!
