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.
