The kits includes high quality, color coded, SAFE ceramic magnets.

Activities in the first part of the book include:

  • Draw with iron filings
  • Discover what sticks to magnets
  • Levitate and bounce rings
  • Swim a duck
  • Make a temporary magnet
  • Detect iron
  • Go fishing
  • Play with magnetic poles

Some more advanced activities include:

  • Build an electromagnet - then flip the poles
  • Construct a compass
  • Visualize the lines of magnetic force
  • Explore compass directions
  • Discover how motors work

Science Wiz - Inventions

4 Major Projects to Build

  • A spinning motor
  • A clicking telegraph
  • A light flashing generator
  • A real AM Radio

Step-by-step, highly visual instructions lead a child successfully through each invention. Full color illustrations present central scientific concepts which allow children to discover the "why" as well as the "how". The use of everyday materials demystifies the workings of common electronic components. The animations that compliment the book on the website deepen and extend comprehension.

Although designed for 8 year olds, Inventions has an extraordinary history and following. It has been used at MIT to mentor high school students in physics. It has been used at U.C. Berkeley to mentor women in science. It has been used similarly at other institutions including the Fermi Lab and the University of Texas at Austin. It was rumored that a number of physicists at U.C. Berkeley were spinning the handmade motors on their desks competing to see which motor would spin the fastest! The IEEE's review boasted, "The projects actually WORK....even for large groups where individualized attention is not possible."

Note: Requires one D-cell battery

Science Wiz - Electricity

The highly visual, step-by-step instructions enable young children to play independently. This children's classic with its touch of whimsy should be your child's FIRST electricity kit.

18 Activities, including:

  • Spin motors and pinwheels
  • Light lights
  • Buzz buzzers
  • Send coded messages
  • Test what conducts

Author’s Comment: Many consumers have described to me how much their children cherish the Electricity Kit. They even put it under their pillows. They say that the instructions are so clear and the materials are so well designed that children play with their circuits for weeks. One of the nicest e-mails came from a busy pediatrician who took the time to described how much her son enjoyed the kit.
