Peter's Price:



Back in 1995, Dr Penny Norman created a kid-friendly science kit called “Electricity”, with the aim to teach children about science through active play. And while she had earned her PhD in biophysics, it wasn’t until that original kit sold millions of copies that she realised she was about to be led down a different path…

Nowadays, Penny juggles designing and manufacturing of games that still hold fast to her original kit’s concepts. She believes that basic science skills among children are on the decline – so it’s time for your little scientist to prove her wrong, with a ScienceWiz kit that will fill them with brainy info!

Geology rocks! Discover everything about our Earth’s crust and how the current landscape was formed with this Rocks & Geology kit, which includes a booklet packed with information and experiments to help young ones gain a greater understanding of our planet.

Using this kit, even kids can undertake a tonne of fascinating experiments. Mould a model of the Earth, create a lava fountain, acid test limestone, form a fossil, and much more (using household objects and those included in this kit, naturally!)
