• Begin a lifetime of scientific investigation and understanding with 25 fun experiments in five key areas: nature, physics, chemistry, air, and water.Learn what plants need in order to grow, build a barometer, see how water climbs, watch plants sweat, and investigate plant propagation. Discover how a magnifying glass enlarges, how colours mix, how static electricity attracts, how sundials tell time, and how a motion picture works. Investigate air pressure, air flow, hovercraft, paper airplanes, and suction. Write secret messages, float a paper clip, blow super bubbles, observe capillary action, and test displacement. Build a soap-driven boat, mix oil and water, experiment with evaporation, paint with sugar, and watch a balloon inflate itself.With a 48-page guidebook, Stepping into Science teaches science fundamentals with step-by-step, hands-on experiments, while also introducing children to the scientific method itself.

    This kit uses a “magic wand” to show the stunning power of electrostatic energy which will inflate the included objects into 3D shapes and hold them invisibly in the air! Power up the generating wand with 2x AA Batteries and hold your own “Magic” show of levitating objects. The full-colour manual teaches the user about the science behind the kit. The electrical potential is similar to that generated by the Van de Graaf Generator; an important high voltage generating device now used for accelerating subatomic particles to high speed, a useful tool for fundamental physics research.
  • Forensic Science Experiment Kit Grab this briefcase full of investigator’s tools and get ready to track down some crooks! Learn about how detectives use forensic science to answer questions, gather evidence, and solve crimes. Experiment with the equipment and techniques used by real detectives to develop your own observation and problem-solving skills.First, you will set up your detective’s office and organise your tools. Then, you will do some exercises to hone your observation skills. Next, you will learn about securing a crime scene, and gathering and documenting evidence, including fingerprints, footprints, and tyre tracks. After you have gathered evidence, such as hair and fibres, counterfeit currency, and soil samples, you will head back to the lab to learn about analysing it. Finally, you can try your hand at deciphering codes, writing messages with invisible ink, and communicating with secret symbols. As your detective skills develop, you can use them to solve the mock crime presented in the manual.The 32-page, full-colour experiment book guides your investigations with rich illustrations and step-by-step instructions. This is an inventive, engaging way to learn real science through roleplaying in imaginary adventures.
