My kids LOVE these kits. We've bought a couple so far, and looked into most of them. They are very informative, interactive and versatile. The experiments can be adapted for grammar school up to junior high level, and still be worthwhile, though I wouldn’t go beyond the 102 level kits for smaller kids. The kits include more than enough materials so you can do many of the experiments multiple times and check to see if your results are the same, or use them for the next child. The experiments can be done in any order. Overall these are well thought out and engaging quality science experiments.
Each kit comes with everything you need except water. They include a workbook to help record the results of your experiments. They are not a full curriculum, but make an excellent supplement. We will be including a couple of them in our curriculum every year.
