Build a working hovercraft that glides across smooth floors or flat water on a cushion of air. Learn how even though air is invisible, it still has mass and can support very heavy objects under the right circumstances. Experiment with propellers and impellers to learn about air pressure and air flow!

The models in this kit use a unique blower motor and a safe, soft-bladed fan to drive a series of models. The blower motor uses an impeller to increase the air pressure under the hovercraft. The fan creates a stream of air to push the vehicle forward. Using these components, you can build and investigate the hovercraft and other machines that rely on air and air pressure to function.

Construct a batting machine that tosses a ball upward on a stream of air. Assemble a basketball launcher and practice shooting hoops with air power. Make a fan-driven car that drives forward, propelled by a stream of air. Experiment to see how much weight your hovercraft can support!

Includes instructions for 10 awesome experiments!

Contains 59 pieces and a 32-page instruction manual.

Requires 6 AA batteries (NOT INCLUDED)

Learn about renewable resources while you build a wind-powered generator to energize your electric vehicle and charge your rechargeable batteries!

The wind spins the turbine, which turns an electric generator, which in turn charges your rechargeable AA batteries (not included). You can then use those wind-charged batteries to power the model vehicles you build. The six models include a glider, sail car, jet car, tractor, race car, or tricycle.

This kit includes two styles of wind turbine blades and a gearbox with three different gear ratios for experiments. You can adjust the angle and number of wind turbine blades to make best use of the wind, to make the LED light up brightly, and to charge the rechargeable battery as fast as possible.

A great gift for young scientists who are ready for a hands-on way of learning about wind energy!

Explore this amazing, free source of renewable energy and store the electricity you generate for use in practical applications!

Requires 1 rechargable AA battery (not included.)

Any questions? We’ve got the answers right here in a book that will take parents off the hook with their children: TIME For Kids BIG Book of Why answers the questions that kids commonly ask and adults can rarely answer. Why do we have eyebrows? What’s a black hole and what happens if you fall into one? What’s the fastest a human is capable of running? Why do wet fi ngers stick to metal in the freezer? Where is the deepest point on Earth? Divided by subject area—humans, animals, environment/nature, technology, and space—and written in an upbeat manner, each answer is accompanied by either a photo or an illustration to show the reasons why. Of course, TIME For Kids goes beyond answering the question by dipping into the science or history to further explain the answer in an easy-to-follow, straightforward manner. This is a must-have book to satisfy the most curious of kids and provides a great way to encourage interest and knowledge about a wide range of subjects, as well as to stimulate reading. Kids will be desperate to share what they’ve learned with their parents, teachers, and friends...and anyone else who will listen.

This complete, deluxe kit has so much to experiement with for young scientists interested in crystals and geodes!

Measure how the crystallization of solids out of a solution and the dissolution of crystals back into solution, affect the temperature of the solution. Learn about the energy of crystallization! Investigate solutions, crystallization, and the chemistry of crystal growing. Learn about the structures and geometries of different crystal shapes.

Experiment with four chemically different crystals each with different properties, including potassium alum crystals that form regular octahedrons, rapidly growing sodium sulfate crystals, long needle-shaped sodium acetate crystals as well as plaster which is made from gypsum crystals. Mold fun plaster shapes, including stars, lightning bolts, dolphins, and pyramids, and grow layers of crystals on them! Use dyes to form colored crystals, and mix the dyes to grow a rainbow of custom coloured crystals.

Once youu have created some crystals you can display your crystal creations in the included clear treasure chest with a locking lid!

Mold your own geode — a hollow rock with crystals growing inside — and create a beautiful crystal cavern within. Experiment with growing crystals rapidly and slowly, and observe how that affects the crystal structures. See if you can grow one giant crystal and many small crystals on the surface of a rock!

A full-colour, 32-page experiment manual guides your experiments in crystal chemistry and Earth science.
