Before your child gets bogged down with scientific equations and overwhelmed with taxonomical classifications, there is a period of scientific exploration full of wonder and eager excitement. Show Me Science is aimed at hitting that sweet spot.
Because this age group can no more read the directions than they can pour the vinegar, Show Me Science will be the parent's science kit. It will be messy; it will be time-consuming, but it will make your little one's eyes sparkle, and it will give him a thirst for science that should last a lifetime. We encourage you to allow your child to participate as much as possible. We made sure that there will be many opportunities for that. Show Me Science's collection of 30 child-friendly experiments will have your child clamoring for just one more. The kit includes nearly everything you need, except for the occasional common household or easily-procurable items. Full-color manual with step-by-step instructions and a link to online demonstrations is also included.
Note: The packaging box is lightweight and may not hold up well through bumpy transit or everyday use. Although we hope to see this kit upgraded to superior packaging in the future, families using this edition of Show Me Science may want to plan on investing in other storage materials.
Do one experiment a week to complete the kit in an academic year.
