I am an environmental scientist and find myself in a lab daily, where my 7 year old son is not allowed. This kit allows him and I to connect by showing him some practical experiments and why they are practical. This kit begins with taking measurements. I think a kid who can measure something is worth his or her weight in gold. I cam now ask him to get me a certain volume of wage while I am cooking.
There are also experiments dealing with the nature of acids and bases and pH paper is included to check things out. My background allows me to put these concepts into context for him and he loves it!
Some children's science kits contain toxic materials, especially some at hobby shops where the stock my not move too quickly and they are shelf filler. This is all non toxic and still allows a kid to try some science with the supervision of an adult. Keep that in mind. No one want their kid losing hair prematurely because they played with mercury.
Buy the kit. Its cheap. Throw in a DVD of Magic Schoolbus prior to doing an experiment to get them jazzed up and ready to learn!
-- MANY experiments for the kids to do. They range from extremely simple to pretty complex. Understand though - there aren't really 50 experiments (even though there are 50 experiment cards). One card introduces you to the kids from the Magic School Bus (we didn't care), one of them was showing you what the science tools are, one of them talks about science safety, one is an introduction from Ms. Frizzle. I'd say there are closer to 35 real experiments for the kids to do - but that's still a great amount for the kids.
-- Clear instructions.
-- Experiment cards are thick and laminated and will last.
-- I liked how much they gave us of certain supplies - things like pH paper, litmus paper, etc. I felt like the kit came with a decent amount so we can do the experiments more than once.
-- The supplies you need to supply from home are very basic. Things like water, pepper, cornstarch... They also supply things we would have had on hand anyway, like borax (though I know some homes wouldn't have this) and foil.
-- The kit is easy to keep organized... keep the plastic trays that everything comes in - they're perfect for storage. The box is also super sturdy, so it serves as a really great storage solution.
-- I wish the notebook that it came with was much more extensive. It only provides space for recording data from about 8 experiments. Some experiments don't really have data to record, but I still think some generic lab paper would have been great.
-- A few experiments didn't really work for us. I don't necessarily think the science was bad, I just think you probably needed to have perfect conditions.Read more ›
