    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

    Explore the workings of a jet engine without the toxic fuel smell! Detailed instructions provide all you need to create this working model jet engine. While it won't fly throughout the house (thankfully!), children will be able to control the thrust and turbine speed from the display stand ("Testing Lab".) While recommended for ages 8 and up, my impression is that middle school age children may require adult assistance. Completed jet engine measures approximately 8" x 12". Includes impressive 35"x12" poster of a U.S. Air Force SR-71 Blackbird with detailed information on the Blackbird, basic engine terms, how a jet engine works, and jet engine components. Requires 4 "AA" (1.5V) batteries and screwdriver (not included). ~ Deanne

    Almost every science course reviews the work of famous scientists and the groundbreaking discoveries that they made. Reading about their work is good, but actually performing the same experiments that these scientists did would be so much more meaningful. With this Thames & Kosmos kit, you can do just that, without the hassle of assembling all the materials yourself. Build a telescope like Johannes Kepler, a spectroscope like Joseph von Fraunhofer, a phonograph like Thomas Edison, a steam engine like James Watt – in all, 100 experiments and discoveries covering the work of 140 scientists and inventors. Chapters are included on: Light, Colors, and Sound; Heat, Steam, and Engines; Magnetism and Electricity; Communication and Microelectronics; Forces; Life; Atoms and Molecules; Stars and Planets; and the Periodic Table. In addition to the models mentioned above, students will also make or study a battery, telegraph, radio, airplane, star map, and many others. All components needed for all the experiments are included in the kit, except a 9-volt battery to power some of the experiments. The 94-page Experiment Manual is an excellent teaching tool in itself; in addition to giving verbal and visual instructions for all experiments, lots of historical information and "Did you know …" tidbits are included. The manual is full-color and contemporary, but includes period photographs and drawings that resemble a lab journal from the past. Over the years, you could be pulling this kit off the science shelf again and again, unless your kids decide to do all of the experiments right away!

    Whether you are passionate about vehicles or just looking for an introduction to building with an Erector® set, this kit is for you. With over 230 pieces and 20 moving machines to build, this set has basic models for beginners as well as more challenging moving models that use the 3v motor (included). Unlike Erector® sets of old, powder-coated and galvanized chrome pieces give the models a stunning look and a rewarding feel when completed. It is one thing to know "righty tighty, lefty loosey"; it is another to use it dozens of times to create something that looks and works great!

    This model kit allows your young dinosaur enthusiast to take their passion to the next level! Children will experience the thrill of being a paleontologist as they construct the 15" T-Rex layer by layer, from squishy organs to the clear plastic body shell. Dinosaur includes 5 squishy organs (heart, intestines, lungs, stomach, and tongue), 9 plastic bones and muscles, and clear outer shell pieces. Once completed, your dinosaur can be displayed on the plastic 'rock' stand. Kit also includes The Mighty Rex, a 24-pg. book from Dennis Schatz, a noted scientist from Seattle's Pacific Science Center. Evolutionary content. Detailed instructions included. ~ Deanne

    Faults can sometimes be confusing to understand because we can't see them. This little foam model can help you demonstrate and explain the changes that take place when fault lines shift below the earth's surface. It is made of 4 layers of foam rubber (yellow, red, green, blue), and offers a great visual to help students understand. There are four pieces in the set and the total measures 4"x 2 ¾". ~ Donna

    Even if you don't live anywhere near the ocean, your kids can still explore the amazing properties of earth's great watery expanse, along with the unique plants and animals that inhabit it. This Kids Can! activity book introduces major ocean and ocean life concepts, followed up with simple hands-on investigations that kids can perform, often with minimal adult help. The text is written in a clear, easy-to-read style, broken up by subject headings, more like a magazine format than in textbook form, and accompanied by playful cartoons of children and sea animals. The investigations use commonly found items, and are typically simple, easy to perform (they obviously know it's hard to keep a kid's interest for very long!) and complement the preceding text to reinforce concepts so the kids can "see" it, rather than just learn about it. For instance, after learning about different shapes and types of fish, they make fish models of clay on a string, and pull them through the water to see which shape creates the least resistance, and then fill up small balloons, with air, oil and water, imitating fish with air bladders, fish without, and sharks to see which has the greatest and least buoyancy when it comes to swimming. Kids love taking an investigative approach to science, why not throw in some ocean books from the library, and make it a science unit?
