Complete review by my ten year old: "Mom,
this is cool."
Now for my comments! This is a really great
kit -- the kit comes in the mail with a parent's guide, a curriculum
manual, and all the "stuff" to complete a study of magnetism.
(Which is great for homeschoolers or just a family wanting to have productive
fun together.) This kit specifically studies magnetism, and comes with all
the supplies and reproducible lessons for making such things as a compass,
an electromagnet, and a motor.
Two nice notes for the parent are that the
lessons, even though reproducible, are nicely illustrated, so that they
don't look like "just a worksheet". And the box comes with all
the supplies, so the parent isn't running around trying to find things like
special batteries and motor wires.
Given one to two lessons per week, this box definitely provides enough
excitement for a trimester, and fun besides.
