Scienceshop kits are designed to support independent learning, challenge gifted and talented pupils and support after-school clubs. In the Stars and Planets set, pupils build their own solar system or create a flip book of the moon's phases. And in Intro to Engineering, pupils learn about forces and speed by creating their own pulleys, wind-up cars, balloon rockets or paddle-wheel boats. Visit www.scienceshop.com.
