Each science kit contains 12 activities and is designed to be a comprehensive study of the 16+ STEM Subjects available. Kits are not grade- or age-specific, but instead cover all of the important concepts generally taught over years in the old, spiraling school paradigm. In keeping with the new National Science Standards of effective teaching, each kit provides hours of concentrated study.

Strictly hands-on, many of the activities are full-scale controlled experiments following the Scientific Method of Investigation. A miniature science fair board is even included in each Little Professor Science Kit.

Absolutely everything needed for the activities is in the box, and each activity is individually bagged and tagged. No “common household items” to gather—all you add is water—and no difficult instructions to first decipher. Simply follow along in the student lab journal and let the learning take hold.

The student lab journal with easy to follow instructions comes with each kit. The clearly written journal allows the concepts to be revealed through the activities. There is very little pre-planning on the teacher’s part and older students should be able to complete the work independently.

The Teacher’s Manual is a small PDF file accessed online at www.academyofscienceforkids.com under the heading “Teacher’s Corner”. Here one will find lesson objectives, helpful advice and answers to online assessments.

At the conclusion of any kit, all students may log-on and take a test to receive a diploma from the Academy of Science for Kids (ASK).

All science kits are aligned with the National Science Standards and have been developed by a Member of the National Science Teacher’s Association. Each is suitable for classroom use, homeschool curriculum, lab time, afterschool enrichment, and just plain fun!
