What are the Young Scientist Club Kits?

Updated on April 12, 2015

The Young Scientists Club is the manufacturer of a series of educational science kits for children. This has been set up in 1999 and since then they have manufactured many Young Scientists Club Kits with the intention of instilling in the young minds an interest towards science through games and activities.

These science kits contains materials that are required to conduct experiments or for demonstrations. With the help of these kits, young children could be exposed to Science at an early age. These kits are fun and engage the kids in activities, games and experiments. These kits contain information on the subjects related to the activities. Thus learning science becomes interesting as they gain knowledge first hand through experiments and activities. These kits are designed for kids belonging to the age group of 5 to 12.

There are numerous Young Scientists Club Kits available on a whole lot of subjects ranging from bacteria and volcanoes to fossils and the human body. Normally, it takes one to two hours to finish an experiment in a kit. But if it involves something like growing bacteria or plants, it will take more time. The kit contains all the materials needed to conduct the experiment except those reusable and readily available materials like plastic containers, bottles, vinegar, baking soda etc. Instructions regarding the procedure to do the experiment, writing down the measurements, observations, and conclusions are part of the kit. These instructions are so simple that kids are encouraged to pen down their observations. Instructions to parents are also given so that they could assist their child efficiently.

The Young Scientists Club Kits could be subscribed just like any magazine. The kits are delivered either once or twice a month as you opt. Each complete kit will be sent regularly. These kits refer to what was learned in the previous sets and what is to be expected in the next set. This enables the ability to maintain continuity in learning. This continuous learning experience distinguishes Young Scientists Club Kits from those that can be bought from stores. This feature has made these science kits suitable for home-learning. These kits are interlinked also. What we learn and make with one kit is not left behind for good, but is made use of in future projects. For example, the kit about magnets could be used to build a compass. This same compass has to be used to make a weather vane when you study about wind.

For children above 9 years of age, the subscription could be started from whichever set they want and not necessarily from kit 1. There are 36 kits available. The topics include recycling, phases of matter, minerals, bacteria and fungi, the digestive system, weight and volume, acids and bases, light, famous scientists and their experiments just to name a few.

This learning program has been widely acclaimed worldwide and has won many awards and citations. These kits introduce the child to the field of science in an interesting way which is both fun and educational. Each kit will leave the child waiting for new ones.
