Thames & Kosmos Thames and Kosmos Rocket Science

This kit is, in fact, rocket science, but that doesn?t mean it?s difficult or boring! Physics comes alive in this action-packed series of experiments centered around a specially-designed ?stomp-on? rocket launcher with three foam rockets. L...aunch water- and air-powered rockets to learn about action and reaction forces, build a balloon-propelled rocket, boat, and race car, and play a game to try to hit target ?planets? with the foam rockets. Explore the physical principles of gravity and inertia, and learn about air pressure. Read up on the different vehicles humans have used to escape Earth?s gravitational pull.

The beautifully illustrated manual included with the Kids' First Biology Lab Experiment Kit guides you through observations of man...y living specimens found in and around your home: onion cells, pond water, chloroplasts, plant stem cross sections, microorganisms, mouth cells, meat cells, different types of hair and fur, dust mites, bugs, pollen in honey, and much more! See how an onion cell shrivels and how an earthworm wiggles. Analyze the differences between the hair on your head and the sheep's hair in your wool sweater! The kit includes three prepared specimens on a slide, four blank slides, cover slips, tweezers, needle, section slicing tool, and vial. Learn how to use these tools to prepare slides, and how to use the microscope to examine them. Investigate how the lenses in a microscope bend light to magnify images. The ocular lens, or eyepiece lens, of the microscope has an adjustable 12x to 18x magnification power. When combined with the three objective lenses, this results in a total magnification power of 96x to 750x. Features a battery-powered light and a mirror to light up the specimens! The full-color, 32-page manual covers microscope setup, usage, and many fascinating observations of biological specimens. 11 experiments total. Requires two (2) AA batteries (not included). For ages 8 and older. Materials: Plastic, Metal, Glass. Dimensions: 16.8 L x 11.5 W x 3.2 H - Packaged; 1.4 lbs Read More

With the Electronics: Advanced Circuits Experiment Kit, start out by experimenting with colorful light-up circuits as you dive int...o the basics of electricity! Install a sound module to generate the sounds of police cars, ambulances, or fire engines. Learn the important role resistors and potentiometers (variable resistors) play in an electronic circuit. Use a multimeter to measure invisible voltage and current flowing through your circuit, and investigate transistors in switches and amplifiers to learn how the logical circuits in computers work. Build circuits that use sensors to detect moisture, temperature, and visible light! Incorporate capacitors in your circuits to store and discharge electricity for specific functions, such as a countdown clock and a red-green alternate flasher. Test out the indispensable 555 timer to build some complicated circuits, or use an operational amplifier and an FM radio module to build an alarm clock. This kit uses the same unique electric building blocks as our other electronics kits, with the addition of many new advanced components, allowing you to build more complex circuits. The more than 140 electronic components include capacitors, resistors, transistors, LEDs (light emitting diodes), phototransistor, switches, speaker, integrated circuit, infrared LED, diodes, FM tuner, 555 timer, operation amplifier, two potentiometers, electrodes, voltage and current meter, microphone, and 9-volt battery pack. Requires one (1) 9 Volt battery (not included). For ages 10 and older. Materials: Plastic, Metal, Wire. Dimensions: 21.3 L x 14.6 W x 3.8 H - Packaged; 3.7 lbs Read More

Thames and Kosmos 628777 This kit still has our award-winning model car with its unique reversible fuel cell not found in other fu...el cell car models. The car still functions in the same manner as described on the opposite page. The Fuel Cell X7 edition is designed to be accessible to more users, both in terms of content and price. The manual focuses more on building and designing a fuel cell car, rather than the comprehensive lesson on the science of fuel cells and solar cells found in the original version. The minimum age is lower and the instructions are geared toward a younger audience. The kit has been optimized for simplicity and ease of use over thorough experimentation. With its new focus, some parts have become unnecessary and have been removed to reduce the cost. The kit that is right for you or your child will depend on your needs, interest level, and age group.

Almost everyone has heard of a chemistry set. But until this kit was introduced, a physics set was almost unheard of. Physics is a...n essential science for everyone, and this kit provides a comprehensive explanation of mechanical physics. Through building 36 models and conducting subsequent experiments with the models, you will learn the fundamental laws of mechanical physics. Start by building small models, such as a fixed pulley, to learn about basic forces and simple machines. Then, work your way up to more complex machines, such as a pendulum clock, to learn more advanced concepts like work and centripetal force. This hands-on approach is both fun and effective because the principles of physics are demonstrated right in front of you. This kit includes more than 300 building pieces. The 64-page, full-color manual presents assembly instructions, experiments and explanations in a richly-illustrated, easy-to-follow manner. Ages 8 and up. Read More
