STEM Gifts to Inspire the young Star Wars Fan

Star Wars, the Last Jedi has lived up to many of the expectations of fans, and with its equal portrayal of both men and women in heroic circumstances, it is a great motivator for the young potential scientist, researcher, engineer, astronaut, or physician.

Fortunately, Uncle Milton has three cool Star Wars-themed products with STEM in mind.

Death Star Electronics Lab

For the electronically-minded (or if you simply want to rule the galaxy), you can open up the Death Star and easily learn to create electronic circuits that activate a range of features. These include Star Wars sounds, music, and special light effects. A creative way to get a feel for the basics of electronics and engineering.


  • Construct electronic circuits inside the Death Star as you activate authentic light and sound effects from Star Wars movies!
  • The real circuit lab includes over 20 experiments, using more than 70 components, for hours of fun play and real STEM learning.
  • Authentic Death Star design lights up and makes a great display on your wall, for fans of all ages.
  • Activity guide with full-color diagrams for each experiment and educational learning on the different functions of real world electronic components.
  • Ages 8 and up

Lightsaber™ Crystal Growing Lab

Everyone knows that Jedi Knights use light sabers, and every Jedi builds their own, and every light saber needs a special crystal. Right? Everyone knows that! But what they don’t know is where the crystals come from and how they are formed. (hint, it’s not on Earth)

Fortunately, you can grow your own Lightsaber Crystals at home, as well as learn about how and why crystals form (and what the heck makes it a “crystal”) with this Crystal Growing Lab.

Not only cool, as well as not taking too long before you see results, this also makes an interesting conversational piece once the youngling is ready to start on building their own actual light saber.


  • Easy to make solution that crystallizes and forms into a real crystal
  • Star Wars display base lights up with blue Jedi and red Sith light effects
  • Science learning poster included
  • Ages 8 and up

Death Star Galaxy Projector

In the age of YouTube, Netflix and iPhones, it takes a lot to keep a young person’s attention, or for that matter, to get them to look up. The Death Star Galaxy Projector is a rotating, high definition view of the Star Wars galaxy and constellations that comes to life in a room in your home. That room could be the kitchen or living room, but we’re guessing that it’s going to be the kid’s bedroom. Not just entertainment, it opens the door to curiosity that leads to learning about our own stars and galaxy, projection images of which also are included.


  • Experience the Star Wars galaxy and Earth’s night sky up close as they come to life in crystal-clear, high resolution on your walls and ceiling!
  • Project over 10,000 stars with brilliant clarity onto your ceiling, view all the planets in the Star Wars galaxy, and watch your ceiling transform into an incredible scene from the famous Battle of Yavin!
  • High resolution optical projector includes ultra-bright LED light, automatic image rotation, adjustable projection angle, and auto shut-off.
  • Authentically detailed Death Star design makes a fantastic display piece for Star Wars fans of all ages.
  • Includes map of Star Wars galaxy.
  • Ages 10 and up
