      Creative thinking with a fun hands-on activity! Kids have to problem-solve to make the magnetic shapes fit on a card creating a fanciful sea creature. There are 26 images on 13 cards (7” x 9.5”) to work through and you use the metal lid as your magnetic base. The shapes and magnets come separately, as you are encouraged to first use the pieces without the adhesive magnets. A solutions card is included. Each card has an outlined space for the pieces and is decorated with whimsical sea creatures all around - very inviting! The whole set comes in a silvery storage tin. This would make a great “wait your turn” activity for homeschoolers, or as a center activity in a classroom. Tin is about 8” x 10” x 1.5”.  ~Sara

     Release the power of the sun and learning! The premise is simple: take the rover outside on a bright sunny day to soak up a few rays (no recommended amount of time suggested). Set the rover on the ground and watch it cruise. Learn to control speed and direction by amount of sunlight you allow to fall on the two solar cells. Take STEM learning to the next level through the numerous step-by-step rover and solar cells activities and additional ideas and experiments found in the included activity manual. Includes 3 cones for obstacle challenges. No batteries required! 2017 Parent Choice Winner. ~ Deanne

      Science is best learned hands on and this well-organized resource provides everything you need to create a home (or school) laboratory from the building of a complete science lab (including the workbench!) to 1600+ activities in Chemistry, Biology, and Physics. Lab activities are designed to be easy to implement at home and use mostly items that are easy to find locally. The author provides a resource list for purchasing items locally and online. Also included are an extensive chemical list (including common substitutes) and helpful appendices with weight and measure charts, temperature conversion table, periodic table, and extended notes. 305 pgs. pb.

      Beginning with general science lab set up and safety practices, the book then divides into separate science fields. The Chemistry is a natural extension of the general lab safety. Projects vary and include generating oxygen, growing a crystal coal garden and crystal candy and more.

      The Physics section, divided into six chapters, covers astronomy and light, atomic energy, electricity and magnetism, force, measurement and motion, geology and meteorology. Diverse projects include making a star chart, model planetarium, making (or recharging) a magnet, making a mercury switch, creating doorbell, mineral identification, making a volcano and much more.

      Biology labs conclude the sections and introduces general biology equipment including making a basic, low power microscope. Basic microscopic activities follow before the chapter concludes with zoology projects.

      Concluding projects are questions, called “Can you work like a scientist?” which challenge further investigation of the topic. Beyond these are abundant research ideas which are open-ended questions for investigation and span all three science fields. Worth mentioning, the research projects cover three grade and skill levels: Primary, Intermediate and Upper levels. While most activities are intermediate and upper levels, there are foundational activities for younger children as well. An example of a primary activity is “What effect has temperature on the rate at which snow melts?”

      Simple black and white graphics, clearly explained purpose, materials and instructions are included. Wonderful resource for families and co-ops or classrooms who want to kindle student curiosity in STEM. ~ Deanne

    Combine logic and science for a fun, electrifying lesson in circuitry. Sixteen tokens snap into place in different combinations to complete the circuit and light the beacon. Challenge cards get you started by showing where to place your starter token, and then you figure out where to place the other tokens needed to complete the pattern (circuit). Three AAA batteries (not included) are placed in the battery receptacle, which is also your start token. The start and finish tokens are wired together and are the power supply for your circuit. You are to use only the tokens seen on the challenge card. There are 60 challenge cards divided into four levels beginner, intermediate, advanced and expert. Light up your logical thinking with this twist on the Rush Hour game.▲CHOKING HAZARD (1). Not <3yrs.

    A bit of history coupled with lots of engineering science as well as fun, easy, and insightful projects make this book practically a “no-brainer” in this STEM-focused educational environment. Tracing skyscraper history from the Babylonian ziggurats to the Burj Khalifa in Dubai (currently the world’s tallest building) via a timeline and a brief history, this descriptive book then plunges into the science behind the feats. Projects are interspersed with STEM vocabulary and engineering information such as types of engineering, the engineering process, and contributing scientists. The 25 projects are well-illustrated, use household or easy-to-get items and are very do-able. The book ends with a look at disasters and near disasters (although noted, time is not spent on the 9-11 terrorist-caused disaster). Engaging, informative, and challenging. 121 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    What's colorful, chunky, three-dimensional, and challenging? Pattern Play 3D provides all that. The 22 wooden blocks are based on extensions of a 1" cube (i.e. two-cube "rods"; three-cube an-gles, etc.) and feel good in your hands. The wooden storage tray serves as a building tray, provid-ing just enough friction to keep blocks in place as you build/replicate the patterns. 20 double-sided cards provide 40 increasingly difficult designs to replicate. And you build these designs up from the bottom rather than across a flat surface, approximating animals or geometric sculptures. Although the pattern projects are challenging, it's the colors that make them engaging; not your typical primary colors but fuchsia, teal, turquoise, chartreuse, grape, lemon, and tangerine.
