So my youngest brother has been a bit of a problem child for my parents, he has been skipping class a lot and getting suspensions for talking back to teachers and the like, school hasn't interested him since he started high school and it's been showing in this attitude and his grades as well. However, he started taking his first physics course in September and he has been loving it, I'm really proud as I was the first to get into physics in my family and I want to encourage him in his first academic interest.

What would be some good ideas to encouraging him? I'm thinking I'd like to get him something fun but physics related for Christmas, but I'm not even sure where to start there.

If you have a Science Centre in your area, taking him there once in a while will be nice. A gift card to a bookstore, or a library pass, can open up a world of greatness. (Yeah, I know... libraries are obsolete... but, there is a magic to them that the internet can never match.)

nerds and budding nerds:
And if the nerds bud well enough, there might even be nerdettes eventually involved.
