This kit contains numerous fun experiments you can perform yourself using common household items and some items you might find at your local hardware store. The kit features stories of how our early inventors discovered new and exciting ways to tap into the interesting world of science. This kit would be very useful to use even for science projects at school or just for the beginner inventor/scientist.

I bought this for my 12-year-old for Christmas. He's been having a ball with it, and learning a lot. My only complaint was that it didn't come with something to organize all the little pieces. But I noticed that ahead of time, and was prepared with a small tackle box for him to put everything in. So far, he's been able to do most of the projects with minimal assistance.

This was our son's "big gift"; he's a 7 yr old who wants to be a scientist when he grows up. Highly recommend purchasing a tackle box or some storage solution to store all of its small parts. While we realize most of the stuff you could cobble together yourself, for us, it was just easier to purchase a science kit with all the parts. I knew the science experiment materials would be made of cheap plastic (and they were), but I was expecting a hardcover, sturdy book for this price. Unfortunately the "manual" is a flimsy paperback (why I rate this product a 4). However, the content of the book is great - jus wish it were more durable. So far we've completed 4 experiments and they've been easy to follow with great discussion questions. It's a lot of fun and very educational (not in a boring way).
