Reviews

"The activities cover electricity and magnetism, sound and light, heat and motion, water and gases, living things, shapes and our planet Earth; this is ideal to support KS2 science as many of the main topics are covered [...] The range of experiments is really good and many of them produce exciting and often unexpected reactions."
