Mostly fun

by DW on 9/24/2010

My 8 year old and I worked through the experiments in a few days. They were pretty cool, but a few things could be changed to make it better. There needs to be warnings that some of the experiments will overflow the test tubes and they need to be done in the sink or tub, somewhat disappointing for experiments that kids are going to take on. Also, why half of the directions on cards, and the other half on paper? Make them all on cards, IMO. Some experiments leak (vegi oil) and thats not fun getting out of the carpet...
