What our experts think
The Secret Science set encourages children to conduct their own engaging experiments and explore the results. Our testers found the instructions clear and easy to understand, so the children could conduct most of the experiments independently, which is great for building their confidence.
Fun and interactive sets like this are a fantastic way to get children using scientific vocabulary and developing their observation skills. Applying their learning to real-life scenarios is a great way to consolidate their knowledge of STEM subjects and complements the National Curriculum.
