Supplementing Homeschool Science

Our family really loves The Young Scientists Club and the products they offer. It makes supplementing homeschool science so much more fun with our daughter when we have products from TYSC. Each year this great club offers amazing new science experiment kits for kids interested in science, technology, engineering and math – known collectively as S.T.E.M.

This summer, the Young Scientists Club took home an impressive eight honors – including two Product of the Year nods—from Oppenheim Toy Portfolio and Creative Child magazine to The Young Scientists Club’s four new ensembles. {Winning an Oppenheim seal is rare and having The Young Scientists Club earn four in one season is cause for celebration!}

We’ve already reviewed (and still enjoy) The Magic School Bus Math Explosion so we were delighted to be able to review The Magic School Bus Engineering Lab this past week.

About the Magic School Bus Engineering Lab

Ms Frizzle and her students take Young Scientists on a wild ride with The Magic School Bus as they explore the fascinating world of engineering. Young scientists are asked by Ms. Frizzle to solve all kinds of fun and unique problems that lead to discoveries in the fields of chemical, electrical, mechanical, and even civil engineering. Young Scientists become engineers when they build a solar oven, design a car, construct a bridge, create solar energy, design an electric game, make a simple machine, construct a submarine, and much, much more! This bus-shaped kit comes with 33 colorful experiment cards, a data notebook to record experiment designs, and is packed with science components such as a solar panel, motor, buzzer, electric wires, and more. Seatbelts, everyone! Get ready to design, create, and experiment with Engineering Lab!

My daughter was so excited to open the Magic School Bus shaped science kit. We set all the pieces out and started looking through the experiment cards. Some were a bit too advanced for her age but that’s okay, we have lots of time to complete the 33 experiment cards. I picked the first one that I thought should be easy for the two of us to do for Science this week – we made our own cardboard car and learned how to make it move with a remote or batteries. It took us a bit but we were able to use a balloon to make it sort of roll. If the construction of our car was a bit better, I think it would have worked. Regardless, my daughter had so much fun. She wanted to do more cars. But after about 30 minutes-45 minutes of that project, I told her to wait until next week. I think I’ll have her daddy help her!

      My daughter loves hands on activities the most in school. She will do book work, but complains a bit much for my liking!

      My daughter has the whole series on DVD and LOVES it. I love that it is so educational. So these kits are perfect for learning and fun!
