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

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. Features: -Green.-For ages 10 years and above.-Powered by renewable energy.-Assemble a working fuel cell car.-Discover how fuel cells work.-Use a unique reversible fuel cell.-Learn about the potential alternative energies for automobiles.-Learn about fuel cell car design.-No batteries required.-Includes a full-color, 16-page manual.-Plastic, wire and rubber construction.-Gender: Boy.-Category: Science.-Minimum Age Requirement: 8 Years And Up.-Age Start: 10 Years.-Age End: And Up.Dimensions: -Weight: 2 lbs.-Overall Height - Top to Bottom: 11.5.-Overall Width - Side to Side: 14.6.-Overall Depth - Front to Ba...

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
