Fun and Learning - Gotta Love It! Review by
This is a wonderful product. Science made fun! As a side note, our blacklight did not work properly as received. Clearly it was a manufacturer issue and not related to shipping. I called the 800 number and received a second one within a few days - no hassle. Great Customer Service!
Terrific educational tool and a lot of fun! Review by
My fourth grade class had a lot of fun with this kit! They were in awe of the fluorescent minerals in the kit and we were actually able to find other fluorescent rocks locally. The kit really helped our unit on rocks and minerals come alive!
Great tool for minerals and more! Review by
This is a great tool to reveal another property that some minerals have (fluorescence), as well as a lesson in electromagnetic radiation. The experiment ideas included in the booklet were easy to do, and the kids loved finding other things in the house that glowed under the blacklight. The portability of the blacklight was a plus - it enabled the kids to do more exploring with it than if the light had to be plugged into the wall all the time.
