Set 2: BECOME A METEOROLOGIST, CHEMIST, AND VOLCANOLOGIST ALL IN ONE SET!
Weather (Kit 4) Solids, Liquids, and Gases (Kit 5) Volcanoes (Kit 6)
Mix solids and liquids to create gas, a bouncy ball, and goop. Make a weather station with a barometer, wind vane, rain gauge, and thermometer. Watch raisins dance. Feel real pumice. Build a volcano and finish this set with an eruption that Young Scientists will want to repeat again and again!
Set 3: GROW A SALT ROCK GARDEN, ROCK CANDY, AND STRING CRYSTALS!
Minerals (Kit 7) Geodes (Kit 8) Fossils (Kit 9)
Break open a large geode. Identify five unknown minerals using the streak, hardness, magnetic, and acid tests. Study a fossil. Complete this set by making a cast and a mold fossil that will impress any budding scientist.
Set 4: GROW, MEASURE, AND MIX!
Bacteria and Fungi (Kit 10) Weight and Volume (Kit 11) Acids and Bases (Kit 12)
Young Scientists of all ages will be fascinated by growing bacteria and fungi of all colors in Petri dishes. Discover how antibiotics can cure disease. Young scientists make and calibrate a scale, learn about density, and test all kinds of substances with pH and litmus paper. Finish this set with some real copper plating!
Set 5: WHAT DO SUBMARINES, CHROMATOGRAPHY, AND CAPILLARY TUBES ALL HAVE IN COMMON?
Water (Kit 13) Capillary Action (Kit 14) Air (Kit 15)
They all use unique properties of water to perform special jobs. See how submarines dive and rise. Watch color dyes crawl up chromatography paper. Use a capillary tube like doctors in a hospital. Observe upward water movement in plants. Finish this creative kit with special tricks that will astound any audience!
Set 6: A JOURNEY INTO THE HUMAN BODY!
Flight (Kit 16) Heart and Lungs (Kit 17) Digestive System (Kit 18)
Make planes, parachutes, jets, windmills, and spinners before flying into the fascinating world of the heart and lungs. Young scientists measure lung volume, make heart and lung models, and design a working stethoscope. The journey continues with the digestive system where the enzyme pepsin eats away gelatin, iodine colors starch, and fats make brown paper translucent. This kit is a sure winner with all Young Scientists that have aspirations in the health care profession!
Set 7: MOVING JOINTS, MAPPING TASTE BUDS, AND OPTICAL ILLUSIONS WILL DELIGHT ALL YOUNG SCIENTISTS.
Bones and Muscles (Kit 19) The Senses (Kit 20) Light (Kit 21)
Make a hinge and ball-and-socket joint, study and recreate an X-ray. Map taste buds. Find cold and hot receptors. Compare spinning glitter to the ear. Make a vocal cord model. Create optical illusions while studying sight and light. Continue the study of light by making rainbows with a prism and white light with a color wheel. A great introduction to the field of physics!
Set 8: EVERYWHERE! AN ELECTRIFYING EXPERIENCE!
Mirrors (Kit 22) Electricity (Kit 23) Circuits and Electromagnets (Kit 24)
Convex mirrors, concave mirrors, reflections, and even a secret code. Insulators, conductors, light bulbs, and light bulb holders are used to design circuits, on-off switches, mazes, and an electromagnet. Complete this set with a self-designed one-eyed monster!
Set 9: LIGHTNING! SPARKS! JUMPING CEREAL!
Magnetism (Kit 25) Static Electricity (Kit 26) Tornadoes, Clouds, and Water Cycle (Kit 27)
This set is as imaginative as it is fascinating. Young Scientists shape magnetic fields, construct a magna doodle, bend water, create real lightning sparks, make cereal jump, learn about the water cycle, and form clouds in a jar. Finish this set with a tornado in a bottle that will keep Young Scientists captivated for hours.
Set 10: THE CYCLE OF LIFE!
Seeds, Fruits, and other Plant Parts (Kit 28) Eggs (Kit 29) Owls (Kit 30)
Start this set as a botanist by studying plants and making a terrarium with the enclosed selection of seeds. Continue this cycle of life by experimenting with eggs and creating a brine shrimp habitat. Young Scientists will learn how to take care of their new pets to ensure survival of these creatures. Finish the set with the dissection of an owl pellet and assembly of a rodent skeleton with the bones found in the pellet. This set is a definite winner for young and old alike!
Set 11: YOUNG SCIENTISTS EXPLORE THE SOLAR SYSTEM!
Stars (Kit 31) Planets (Kit 32) Forces (Kit 33)
Study the stars with a star fact book, make a constellation box, design a telescope, and use bouncy balls and planet facts to create a solar system mobile that will enlighten any room. Finish this set with the study of forces, gravity, momentum, and Newton's three laws of motion. A great introduction to astronomy!
Set 12: SLIME, SHRINKING PACKING PEANUTS, JUMPING PEPPER, AND BUBBLES.
Surface Tension (Kit 34) Polymers (Kit 35) Famous Scientists and Their Experiments (Kit 36)
A foil boat gliding across the water, pepper jumping, and very large bubbles are all possible with the presence of surface tension. Diapers, slime, bouncy balls, and shrinking peanuts are created with polymers. This set is completed with recreating experiments of famous scientists. Make a Cartesian Diver, Galileo's Pendulum, and study Archimedes and Bernoulli's Principles. Young Scientists will for sure be inspired by these famous scientists and maybe even become one themselves! * Recommended for ages 5 year and up
Material: Science Kit
Brand: Young Scientists Club
For more than a decade, The Young Scientists Club has inspired and engaged children with hands-on games, activities, and experiments that make science fun and fascinating. Founded in 1999 by Esther Novis, a Harvard graduate and mother of five, The Young Scientists Club began as a summer science camp for her five-year-old son. When friends around the country wanted in, Novis packaged the experiments and mailed them off. The entrepreneur's fan base grew quickly — today, her team of scientists, educators, and parents mail the kits to thousands of children around the world, and sell them in thousands of specialty stores.
