My last Christmas gift to buy is for my 12 year old grandson. He is an intelligent boy, interested in science and loves Legos but has mastered sets that are beyond his age range. We think we have a little engineer on our hands.I have already exceeded my Christmas budget, but need a nice gift for him around 25 to 30 dollars. I would like encourage his interest. Any suggestions?

They have lots of different building sets for older kids. I like this one, Engino Mechanical Science: Cams & Cranks 30.94link title

it also is at Walmart for 28.62

This brand has a whole bunch of different sets.

Have you looked into microscopes? There are some nice ones that are not too expensive for a beginner. You can buy additional slides later which makes the gift keep giving.

How about a book of science experiments that kids can do?

Try Radio Shack..they have a lot of diy projects that might be good.

Would he be interested in taking things apart to see how they work? If so, find some old electronics for him to disassemble and study. Or if he likes to build go to Mike's Hobby Shop and see what different kits are available.

I suggest you go over to Toys in the Park in the Steinmart shopping center and talk to Fred, the owner. He has science kits and knows what kids like.
