Loved by parents
"The fact that it is very interactive, and encourages abstract thought and the discipline of method and observation. It is also A LOT OF FUN! Even for the parent. My kids want to go into scientific fields as a result!"
"Experiments are well laid out with enough material to do the experiments again if you like. They’re a fun way to introduce kids to science and it will do them well when they start science at school."
"My kids love the unique projects and the variety of choices. We’ve tried STEM, Physics, and Chemistry, and each one has been a hit."
