    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!

    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

    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).

    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
