My son asked for this for his birthday. The experiments were very interesting and engaging both for him and the adults at he demonstrated them for!

My daughter absolutely LOVED this project. She loved putting it together and then using the lab to create the vortex.

My kids loved all of the experiments. We plan to buy another set in the future because the kids had so much fun and learned so many new and challenging concepts.
