Everything you need is in the kit. There are many projects to work on. My son loves it. We are going to the science and surplus store to purchase additional materials for MORE experiments! I am so glad D.M. is reaching out to kids with physics & engineering! This is what our youth needs!

I read about this kit and decided to buy it for my daughter. She loves it so much that she wants to buy each of her friends a kit for their birthdays. I love it when something is educational AND a great buy...
