My daughter loves this! She was able to do the experiment herself at eleven years old. It was really cool. It works on potatoes, lemons, or in soda. The directions were clear. A well-thought out science/STEM toy that any boy or girl would love. Would be great for younger kids--if they have an adult's help, also great for older kids (including tweens or teenagers) who could do the experiment themselves. A great homeschooling addition.
This kit actually works as described, we did all the experiments and it all turned out great! My son is 10 and could do most of it without help, some adult participation is required. Worth the time and money. Great for homeschooling or anyone who loves learning by doing.
After using this kit my daughter and I were discussing different ways science is used in everyday life and she looked at me and said, "Mommy, sciences awesome!". I felt as a teacher , as a mother, and as environmental biologist both excited and hopeful for the future! Every child, every person on this planet should be involved with science and how it impacts our lives! This kit is an introduction for young minds to become involved in science, to start a conversation, and it was truly an awesome experience to watch the moment of discovery on my child's face.
