Description

This kit, designed by the American Physical Society, enables students to perform experiments related to thermal energy as they try to help Spectra solve the mystery of Tesla Junior High's puzzling new weather patterns. Each kit contains all the materials needed to conduct four fun and exciting physics experiments as well as a resource book. As students complete the activities they will gain the physics knowledge necessary to save the world, or at least Tesla Junior High. The experiments are intended to be completed in small groups in a classroom or after school setting.

This kit is simply awesome. It has everything you need in the box and ready to go. Endothermic, exothermic, conduction and more - ready and so much fun, the kids want to do it again and again. Love this one.

Watch Out! Dangerous!

Sorry, but the blue pencil you have pictured with the kit totally engulfs in flames if the candles burn more than a minute. You need to watch the pencil carefully. As soon as you see the blue color go white blow the candles out! Substitute perhaps a wooden dowel as I experienced the same with a yellow pencil too! ...................................................................................................................................... ....................................**Educational Innovations Responds**......................................................................................................................................................................... Thank you, Carol. The blue pencil (actually any painted pencil) was found to be flammable and has since been removed from the kit.

These kits are great for advanced middle school students with good math skills. Comic type book and 4 challenging labs truly enhance the science curriculum.
