If you are a lover of science or know someone that is, you’ll want to know about these cool offerings. That’s right, I used the word cool to describe products created for all the geeks and nerds that embrace and adore everything related to science. If being honest, most will admit that there’s a little bit science love in all of us. Oh come on, you know you’ve watched an episode of Myth Busters and been in awe of all those sweet mentos and soda rockets going around on the internet.
Julie Huffman and Jenavieve Brown are ShopGibberish, a mother/daughter team from Los Angeles. Julie is a high school chemistry teacher as a full-time occupation and a part time chemistry instructor at a university in LA. Jenavieve works full-time for ShopGibberish, as a maker and social media maven! These ladies brought their wonderful differences and similarities together to create two brilliant science products.
Celebrate your all-out geekery with your very own journal! Did you finally figure out that calculation for String Theory? How did you feel about the Doctor’s latest regeneration? What superpower would you most love to have? Did you find a hack in the latest video game? You can put it all in one place!
And, if you’re not sure what to write in your Nerd Journal, Julie Huffman and Jenavieve Brown have peppered this 128-page, hardcover with some of the greatest science facts, jokes, and more!
– Why can’t you trust atoms? They make up everything
– At room temperature, there are only two liquid elements. These are bromine and mercury.
– The only letter in the English alphabet not used on the periodic table is J. The letter q only appears in the symbol for the placeholder name for element 114, ununquadium, which has the symbol Uuq. When element 114 is officially discovered, it will be given a new name.
So think about your passions, obsessions, brainstorms, and inventions. Write them down, because some day, we might find your Nerd Journal and put it in a museum, smarty pants!

Sometimes you just need to talk science, and what better way to say, “hey,” to a fellow nerd than with these perfect Periodic Thoughts postcards. Embued with scientific quotes and laws, each card is designed using different letters from the Perdiodic Table of Elements.

Final Thoughts: I feel that the journal and postcards are perfect for those of all ages. Whether for a gift for a special occasion, back to school, or for yourself these won’t disappoint. I can tell a lot of thought went into both. I am quite impressed with the quality and the cleverness of each. I offer both products my highest of recommendations.
