I purchased this OWI Robot kit as a gift for my 8 year old grandson. He has not yet received the gift (Christmas) but wanted to comment on how small the box actually is. When it arrived, wasn't sure what to expect, but was surprised how small the box actually was, so assume after final construction the robot will be also. I will follow up after he opens the gift and he and his pa have the opportunity to assemble
I got this for my 7 year old grandson, along with the rock science kit. It was overheard him telling his sister, these are very special, I will keep them forever! Great value, a lot of bang for my buck!
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.
