    Excellent teaching kit I bought this kit to support a home-based learning program for a fifth-grade boy (11 years old). It is EXACTLY what I was looking for – there’s the fun of building the labs, then the fun of trying the experiments. The included documentation is very good, as it describes not only how to build the equipment, but also how to conduct the experiments, and it also discusses the related scientific concepts. I’d suggest that parents/educators read through everything ahead of time if they plan to use this kit as a teaching tool, to become familiar with the flow of the material. You can easily jump around between topics within the book, as the labs generally do not depend on each other (with the exception of force scale).The suggested age range for this kit is 8 – 12, but I’d be inclined to increase the upper limit, as some of the concepts are clearly in middle school territory.

    Getting tired of Legos? Try this. My son is always tinkering, building contraptions, etc. We could tell that the Legos were getting “old” for him, so we bought this. He really likes it, and is always building stuff like cranes, windmills, etc. Everything in the set is sturdy, with quality similar to Lego, but with more gears and pulleys.
