What our experts think
George’s Marvellous Experiment Kit based on the weird and wonderful world of Roald Dahl, is a lovely way to engage children’s natural curiosity and creativity, while allowing them to conduct their own experiments. The included booklet is easy to follow and understand, although children will need some adult help throughout for some of the required tasks, such as using the oven.
The kit comes with a wide range of original experiments inside and children really enjoyed conducting them and seeing how they worked – this teaches important STEM skills including observation, logical thinking and cause and effect. It also furthers children’s understanding of different scientific concepts in a practical and engaging way. It is worth noting that some of the experiments require extra ingredients that you may need to purchase if you don’t have them already.
