The Young Scientists Club was started by Esther Novis, a mother of five and a former Harvard-trained biologist over a decade ago as a summer science camp for her then 5 year old son. Friends from other parts of the country told Novis they felt cheated that their kids couldn’t participate, so she packaged the experiments and sent them off. The ideas was such a hit that now subscription kits are mailed monthly to thousands of children around the world and the company’s retail kits are sold in hundreds of specialty stores worldwide.
We were thrilled to receive the Magic School Bus Diving into Slime, Gel and Goop kit by the Young Scientist Club. My little ones are budding scientists and could not have been more excited. I, on the other hand, was not so thrilled with the kit- Slime, Gel and Goop- sounded messy to me!! I have to admit, however, that I had more fun doing the experiments and activities than my children.
There are so many amazing aspects to this kit including step by step instructions, multiple exciting experiments, and hours of family fun. I loved this kit so much that we will be purchasing other kits from the Young Scientists Club for Christmas for other young family and friends. I would recommend these kits to anyone wanting a way to help young ones get excited about science and spend some wonderful time learning and laughing together.
