- Monday, November 28, 2011Good idea but didn't workReviewed By: Sharon B.
I purchased this kit for my 11 year old son. He liked it a lot a first, but the lack of detailed instructions left him really frustrated. Good idea, but this kit needs more detailed instructions.

We bought this for our daughter and she loves just working through the items and trying things on her own.

I was very impressed with this kit. I don't think it is for children younger than 12 years old, however. I think the value of this kit is greatly enhanced if the child does it by themselves. My 14 year old daughter loves it and is enjoying doing the experiments by herself. The guide is excellent and very user friendly.

Dad had fun with the kit. 8 year old son loves to build but had some trouble getting windmill assembled. Some of the experiments are above an 8 year old level and those were the first ones he tried. Son lost interest and went back to legos but he keeps looking at the gears and puts a few pieces together each day. I think he will grow into the kit if we can keep from loosing the pieces before then. Kit does offer a lot of experiments providing learning oportunities for how things work.

The lab manual is very good at explaining the science behind the models, something frequently missing from science kits. My only major complaint is that it lacks step-by-step building instructions for the models.
My ten year old daughter has enjoyed and learned a fair amount from it.Read More Reviews
