Great "after trip learning"
8/22/18
By Monica
Went to the Santa Cruz mystery spot for a trip and my kids had so much fun, they wanted to learn more about it. This kit helped us learn about the fun tricks at the mystery spot and the how's and why's. Lots of fun

Good news, the kit had everything you'd need so we didn't have to stop to get supplies. The experiments were fun for the most part and it was amazing for the kids and I to learn about light and lenses and so on. Highly recommend it!

Used this with my kids and I was happy I didn't have to make endless trips out to get items. The kids had fun too, the activities were engaging and taught some interesting lessons about light, lenses, colors and so much more. For the price it's an incredible value.
