      Both my ten year old daughter and my 8 year old son enjoyed learning about jet engines and propulsion. This is a good product that you and your kids can enjoy. It comes in a nice package and is easy to understand. The smithsonian brand is always a solid choice.

      My jet works stem kit was missing some pieces making it impossible to complete which really upset me because I had looked forward to it for a while
