6 New Science and Discovery Kits for Kids

4 of 7

Forensics Fingerprint Lab

This CSI-inspired fingerprint kit is part of a series of simple kits designed to introduce kids to basic science concepts. The fingerprint kit comes with everything a budding forensic scientist needs—stickers, ink, dusting powder and more. Little sleuths can dust for prints, analyze the results and then play a simple detective game. One of the biggest pluses of the kits in this series is the focus on a single subject—kids can learn specific science concepts in their area of interest without getting overwhelmed. Safe, but a little complex—best for older kids.
