What our experts think
The Hot Wires science set has hit the top score all round! Children thoroughly enjoyed creating working circuits and it’s great that they have the freedom to try out their own too.
The instruction booklet has simple to follow diagrams and the components are easy to connect and disconnect to create and recreate various circuits. The experiments in the book get progressively harder allowing children to develop their knowledge and build their confidence – and with over 100 different experiments to try, the set can keep children’s interest for a long time.
Hot Wires is perfect for supporting children’s learning at school with scientific symbols on each component so they can draw out the circuit once made. We can’t recommend this more highly!
