Science is often said to be magic, and magical phenomena are often explained with science! This kit gives children a fun way to ex...plore scientific occurrences and principles by doing exciting tricks and performances for an audience. The 20 easy tricks in this kit always have scientific explanations behind them, even if they appear to defy the laws of physics and nature! The tricks include levitating objects, making objects appear as if to move on their own, gravity-defying water, magically puncturing an apple with a flimsy plastic straw, a magical funnel that won't let water through, resting a balloon on a bed of nails without it popping, disappearing water, a magical balancing butterfly, levitating a funnel on a string, a magic box that makes objects disappear, and many more. Fun demonstrations include: What falls faster, a feather or a heavy weight? Can you blow bubbles into two glasses of water at the same time? Can you make a water balloon rise up on its own from the bottom of a tub of water? The kit also includes a small cardboard theater, props, tickets, and flyers to set the right stage for your magic show. The 48-page, full-color, comic-book style manual guides you through the preparation and performance of the 20 magic tricks. For ages 7 and older. Materials: Plastic, Cardboard.

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
