Energy Science Kit

Join the green revolution! This timely kit lets kids experiment with the ways that energy powers our world today, and how it might be powered tomorrow. A nicely illustrated instruction book guides would-be Greenies through over twenty experiments-- from building a solar racer, to a flywheel generator. As they tinker with an electric car or build a battery to light up an LED, kids gain major insight into science fundamentals they'll use throughout high school science and beyond. Whether your kid is already curious about this stuff, or isn’t so interested yet, this hands-on science kit is a fabulous place to start. (ScienceWiz, $16.99)
