Kitchen Science teaches: early chemistry, math (measurement), cause and effect
What do you do with a fork, tomato, and lightbulb? This is no joke — it's a science experiment!
Aspiring Madame Curies and Dmitri Mendeleevs (not a science history buff? Mendeleev developed the first periodic table) will unleash magic and mystery with this science-in-a-box that incites kids to muck up the kitchen, all in the name of chemistry.
Along with creating electricity (see above: tomato, fork, and lightbulb), your young chemist can claim that she is, in fact, a rocket scientist after launching her own rocket. Unlike some DIY junior science kits, this one is smartly put together: its creators understand what an elementary schooler actually can do and wants to do. However, like most science kits, parents must provide plenty of ingredients — and of course be on hand to oversee measuring and to make sure the science lab, a.k.a kitchen, doesn't end up a complete disaster zone.
Bottom line: Pure amusement, with plenty of learning tucked into every experiment.
