A pair of magnets, compass, flashlight bulb with insulated copper wire and alligator clips, glass prism, set of small mirrors, and balloons make up a set of clever learning tools when they're supplemented with this kit's 64-page book of fascinating science experiments.
Kids discover fundamental principles of physics in the most effective way, which is learning by doing! They can introduce themselves to the relationship between magnetism and electricity, and they will discover the fundamental principles of light as it is diffracted through a prism to produce the entire color spectrum. They can perform experiments with air pressure, and they will gain understanding of how a compass points toward the Earth's magnetic North Pole.
All these experiments (plus dozens more fun projects) are safe, easy-to-perform, and require only the included materials and objects that kids will readily find around the house. Here's a great introduction to the world of science, perfect for school or home.
For ages 7 and up.

I bought this kit for my eight year old daughter. She loves it. It is portable, so she takes it everywhere. She can even share the experiments with her older brother, and they actually get along during the fun. If you are a parent that ever needs a little time for yourself, this is a great "go to your room and find something to do" kit.
