    We can learn the basics from the colorful science readers that are available, but why not engage those senses while reading and learning about them? Make some perfume (or maybe a stink bomb!), check for sourness, confuse your sense of touch, try your hand at Braille, make a hearing aid, find your dominant eye, make a telescope – the activities are many (those named are just a sampling) and explore through the 5 senses in a very engaging manner. The 62-page guide book is glossy and colorful with plenty of pictures and illustrations to make completing the activities easier. Most of the things you need are included in the kit, with just a few things you will need to collect yourself. - Zach 1CHOKING HAZARD (1). Not <3yrs.

    The instruction manual contained in this kit is an education in itself, but for children there's nothing quite like getting their hands involved in seeing for themselves how things work. As you work your way through the activities in this kit with your children, they'll learn all about magnets, the way they're attracted to iron, poles, compasses, magnetic force fields, and electromagnets. Then at the end, they'll get to have some fun with magnet games—for a total of 33 experiments to do! The kit includes ring, block, and ball magnets; plastic chips; a horseshoe and bar magnet set; compass; iron powder; an iron rod; wire; a polystyrene disk; and a cardboard strip for one of the games. Additional items are needed for some of the experiments, all of which are normal household items. –Chad

    When it comes to hands-on projects, there seem to be two kinds of people in the world: those who want to assemble all the pieces necessary in the least expensive way and those who just want a complete kit so they don't have to run around and purchase supplies. If you're one of the latter, you will appreciate the wide range of equipment and tools included in this kit, as well as the comprehensive experiment guide. Like other kits from Thames & Kosmos, this one is well-produced and includes quality materials and a full-color experiment manual. The manual includes instructions for completing 100 experiments in the areas of physical science, earth and space science, and life science with specific chapters for experiments on: water, air, heat, sound, forces, magnets, electricity, electromagnetism, light and shadow, optical instruments, plants and animals, colors, human body, earth and sun, and chemistry. Looking through the manual, I recognize many experiments that are common middle-school fare such as weighing balloons with different amounts of air to show that air does have weight, making an atomizer that displays Bernoulli's Principle, changing water to ice to water vapor, observing that water expands when frozen, observing sound waves on the surface of water, swinging a cup of water to observe centrifugal force, building simple circuits, making an electromagnet, using mirrors to explore rays of light, making a camera obscura, dying carnations by placing them in colored water, listening to your heartbeat, building a sundial and many more that are often seen in curriculums or experiment books at this level. All special equipment is included, as are common objects like balloons, straws, modeling clay and black paper. Materials needed are listed at the beginning of each activity, with materials in the kit in regular font and additional materials needed in italics. Because so much is included here, materials that you provide are "basics" like water, batteries, flashlights, newspaper, and scissors. With the breadth of topics covered, this is one science kit that you'll use again and again. – Jess

    One of the coolest things I remember about visiting a local rock and gem museum was the room with the "glowing rocks." Under regular light, they look like any other rock, but turn on a UV light and they glow in beautiful colors pink, green, blue, purple. Now you can see this phenomenon with the Fluorescent Rocks Science Kit by GeoCentral.

    The kit contains 9 rocks (approx. 1/2" to 3/4" each), a guide, magnifier, streak plate and UV pen. Use this kit to learn why rocks glow, test their hardness, and more. ~ Donna

    This might just be the most awesome volcano kit we carry! This kit includes a volcano mold, plaster, eruption powder, paint, paintbrush, booklets, and real specimens (geode, obsidian and pumice). Be creative and paint your volcano to make it personally yours, then make it erupt over and over with the erupting powder. The geode, obsidian and pumice are included so you can see and feel the different types of igneous rocks. You even get the bonus activity of breaking the geode to see what types of crystals are inside the rock. The Activity booklet includes ten fun puzzles - word search, dot-to-dot, word jumble, crossword, a very challenging volcano maze, and five more types of puzzles. The Adventure Guide includes information about volcanoes, structure of the earth, plate tectonics, etc. accompanied by colored photographs.

    This Discover with Dr. Cool Kit is just that – COOL! Great fun to paint, erupt, and learn about volcanoes and rocks. ~ Donna

       Learning about fossils is a lot more fun if you can get a sample in your hand. Who has time to go out and collect them? Packaged neatly, this set of 9 specimens will intrigue your learners as they learn about fossils. The included guide book offers additional information on the specimens in this kit – sea urchin, white clam, gastropod, crinoid stem, brachiopod, ammonite, sand dollar, shark tooth, and coral. Each fossil ranges in size from ½” to 1” – a good size to see details. The guide book also includes a word scramble and word find for a little bit of fossil-word fun. ~ Donna

    A cross between mini-mysteries and a detective science kit, this fun set teaches children forensic techniques while they work through two mysteries! In the first mystery, "The Case of the Mysterious Painting," young detectives will examine a painting for clues, analyze suspect data using a graph, test the pH of a water sample, measure shoeprints, extract DNA from strawberries (or other fruit), and compare DNA profile strips. In the second mystery, "The Case of the Cursed Cookies," kids learn even more techniques, including ink chromatography, testing flour and baking soda with citric acid, and examining fingerprints. Although the stories are a little cheesy and actual forensic techniques are a bit more complex, putting the experiments in the context of the story really brings the techniques to life and makes them extra exciting! Although all special supplies are included, you will need some household items to complete the activities – and a discreet adult helper to set up at least one test. – Jess
