How it works
It is quite fascinating how more children are getting interested in the science field through toys and animated TV shows. Kids dream about having a secret laboratory by watching Dexter’s Lab or learn how to experiment through many educational STEM toy kits. It is very refreshing to see our little ones develop a bond with subjects that could be perceived as too complex or boring if presented in a dull manner. The wonderful science lessons, when presented in an amusing and genuine manner, are truly welcomed by the younger generations who not only feel entertained by all the learning experience but also get to envision themselves as prospective candidates for a career in this futuristic field.
The Primary Science Lab Set is wonderful 12-piece set that aims to foster the curiosity of young children aged 4 years old and above by providing them with the right tools to conduct easy and fun science experiments. Today’s educational curriculum calls for a strong foundation in the sciences including technology, engineering, and mathematics. Because of the rapidly-changing teaching-learning landscape in modern schools, toy makers have to respond to these changing needs. Learning Resources is responding to such calls by designing, developing, and manufacturing the Primary Science Lab Set.
The kit also includes 3 test tubes, one of which measures 6 inches tall and all of which come with their respective lids and test tube stands. These are perfect for transferring, mixing, and managing smaller amounts of solutions and substances that may be too small for the beaker. Completing the set are a magnifying glass, a pair of tweezers, an eyedropper, and 10 activity cards to help direct the learning of children. This way your little ones will be guided throughout the whole educational journey and would easily comprehend and overcome the fun learning challenges ahead of them.
Since the kit comes with a variety of science-related objects and processes, the Primary Science Lab Set provides kids with the opportunity to expand their vocabulary by getting acquainted with different words or terms. For example, in the science experiment called “color mixing”, children learn of the words that make up different colors. They also learn about the concept of primary and secondary colors. They will also learn the words “test tube”, “beaker”, and “eyedropper” and use these to formulate other sentences.
This is an excellent opportunity for learning more about the vast universe of science. While the experiments are quite simple and adapted for children who haven’t had any experience in this field whatsoever, they will be a great foundation for sparking an interest in further developing the educational process. When the tiny hands get the opportunity to touch the actual equipment and follow the measurement and mixing guidelines, they are able to learn by doing which is proven to be more effective in almost any field. Science kits of this kind are strongly recommended by educators and psychologists to be used as after-school activities since they provide a quality educational playtime while providing many learning and mental benefits.
Even though this set comes with cards and instructions, once children get the idea of the scientific methods and skills required to create a successful experiment, they will most certainly try inventing their own projects. In fact, some parents even give their little one’s rainbow sprinkles, flour, salt, sugar, and other kitchen ingredients so they can feel even more accomplished with their unique creations.
By pretending they are working on a secret chemistry project, children embark on a creative role-play scenario which allows them to dream big and visualize a whole new world ahead of them. A place where they are scientists developing a cure for a deadly disease to help their dolls and action figures recover and heal. They might even imagine finding a new power-enhancing potion that turns humans into superheroes. The play-pretend adventures are truly endless and will definitely have your little one wanting to try a real white lab coat sooner than you might’ve expected.
They will be able to practice dexterity without even realizing it and become more careful and responsible with their personal items as well. Since science requires having all the ingredients organized and kept separately, they might start doing the same thing with their toys. You can advise your little ones about the importance of keeping their science lab area clean in order for their projects to be successful and inspire them to clean their room as well. It is quite unfair to think of all these activities as rather passive and dull, when they provide many mental and physical benefits for the little geniuses if approached in the right way.
The set is so interesting; it would be a great family bonding activity during the holidays. Children can either make a scientific presentation for their relatives or invite grandma and grandpa to join the discovery process and experiment together. Once they begin inventing their own recipes and start mixing unusual ingredients, the little scientists will have an unlimited resource of ideas for play-pretend scenarios. With so much fun going on right in your living room, it is safe to say, they will forget about Netflix and video-games, at least for a certain period of time, and embark on a whimsical educational journey.
