    "I read the directions for the activity and then rewrote them with step by step directions with visual supports. I took out some of the less pertinent vocabulary and framed the experiment as goal-directed toward answering a question. For example, the magnet experiment was to determine what things are ferrous magnetic. I instead wrote two lists with blanks and had my kid walk around the house seeing what it would stick to (30 items total). Then we sat down and wrote next to each item what the item was mostly made of, and compared the lists to see what is magnetic and naturally arrived at "metal". My kid loved being investigative, having some independence, and having the sensory stimulation magnets naturally provide when you play with them."

    A rating of Magnet Levitation Kit
    Posted 7/24/2014 by Heather Johnson

    This science kit is a bit above the level of my kid, but because the product is so high quality and has clear directions, I've been able to successfully adapt the concepts to his comprehension. I also love that the kit has more than one experiment, so I can spread it out over a few days and prolong his enjoyment. We've both had fun and learned a lot!

    Review for Magnet Levitation Kit
    Posted 4/2/2014

    An adult's supervision during construction is necessary and that's fine, however, it would be more intuitive to a child if assembly is explained visually in a video so she can mentally follow. That way, the child would at least envision what she needs to do and the adult would be there for his motor skills only.

    Great Kit!
    Posted 10/26/2013 by Claudia Ross

    This is a great kit! We bought it as a back-up for a Science Fair project -- and we needed it. The instructions are easy to use, and the finished product is fantastic. The only suggestion I would make is to disregard the four taped together blocks and go to a craft store (AC Moore or Michaels) and buy a 24" piece of craft wood for the track base instead. Also, we drew on and painted our "train" car to make it look more realistic. Now, if I can just get my son to stop playing with his project so we can get it to the Fair! ;-)
