Our Metal Detector from the John Adams Action Science range
of Science & Education learning toys makes an ideal gift
for the more inquisitive child, encouraging learning through
playing and sparking the imagination. Although classed as
a toy, this is a real working metal detector. Older children
may be ready for a high performance detector. We therefore
recommend that you also visit our
main metal detector section
before making your decision
- remember you can always call us up for further expert
- Real working metal detector
- Electronic LED and audible alerts when an object is detected
- Extends from 58 - 96cm
- Battery lasts over 40 hours
Our children's metal detector uses
sophisticated integrated circuits to detect metal below
the surface of the ground. This is a real working metal
detector and, while it is obviously not as powerful as
the other metal detectors in our catalogue, it will enable
your child to find things, generating a lot of excitement.
Extendable, highly sensitive metal detector with electronic
audible and visual warnings. Extends from 58-96 cm with
adjustable search coil. Requires 1 x 9V battery, not included.

Famous Scholars: Ernest Rutherford In 1895,
JJ Thomson, discoverer of the electron, appointed a young
Ernest Rutherford as one of his first graduate students
at the Cavendish Laboratory. In 1898 Rutherford left Cambridge
and spent the next twenty years establishing a world-class
reputation with his pioneering work on the structure of
the atom. In 1919 he was the obvious choice to take over
from Thompson at the Cavendish, where he created an outstanding
team of scientists who furthered his work in nuclear physics.
Many groundbreaking discoveries emerged from the Cavendish
under Rutherford's direction, in particular Chadwick's work
on the neutron. In 1932, John Cockcroft and Ernest Walton
first split the atom.
