Just saw this deal from Educents for kids 5 to 12 for 50% of the Magic Schoolbus Young Scientist Club for one year. You will receive a kit every month of fun experiments and activities to do with your kids at home. Shipping is included in the purchase. Every kit contains: Each kit includes: 

  • Detailed, large 12-page colorful manual that is full of experiments and topic information 
    • Each manual is based on the popular Magic School Bus books and TV series 
    • Includes an adult section so that adults with no science background will find the kits easy to use 
    • Materials and information necessary for a range of interactive experiments (include sample photo) 
  • Topics include: Magnets, Acids/Bases, Human Body, Weather Station, Water, Light/Rainbows and Mirrors, Volcanoes, Air, Fossils, Stars/Planets, Bacteria/Fungi, Solids/Liquids/Gases

This is a really great way to inspire and encourage kids to develop a love for STEM. Science is notoriously underfunded in public schools at the elementary level, so this is a family friendly way of supplementing at home.

Recommended for aged 5 to 12 for homeschooling or families who want to supplement science education at home.
