Science Kit Collection Gets Bigger!

Our Simply Science: Discovery Kits to Go are growing!  We have added three new ones for you to check out and explore.  Let me introduce them.

Do you enjoy coding?  Then you may want to check out the Code & Go Mouse Activity Set.  Design your own maze complete with walls and tunnels, then position a cheese wedge somewhere along the course.  Program a sequence of movements into the mouse with the end goal of getting to the cheese.  Try to do it in the fewest moves possible!

Perhaps biology is an interest?  The Geosafari Jr. Talking Microscope offers the opportunity to learn about animals, plants and everyday common objects.  Australia Zoo's own Bindi Irwin narrates the 100+ facts about the 60 full-color slides.  You can even take a quiz on what you've learned.  The microscope is durable, making this a wonderful kit to check out for those inquisitive preschoolers.

Have you ever thought about building your own computer?
This kit may be for you then.  The Kano Computer Touch Kit teaches children ages 6+ how to build a tablet with step-by-step visual instructions.  No technology knowledge is needed.  It's amazing how easy they make it.  Once the tablet is built, practice coding with 100+ creative challenges and stories.  Or make art, games and music.  The creativity never ends!

We are excited to announce there will be more additions to the Simply Science: Discovery Kits to Go which we will share later this year.  If you have any ideas for new kits, please let us know because your input is invaluable.  In the meantime, enjoy and explore the world of science and math with us!
