GEMS Home Science Kits
Take the Lawrence Hall of Science home!
Check out the GEMS line of award-winning home science kits for
kids! All are based on some of the most popular activities developed
at the Lawrence Hall of Science. Soda Pop Science is the
winner of the Oppenheim Platinum Science/Crafts Best Toy
Award, and FamilyFun Toy of the Year (T.O.Y.) Award.
Oobleck was selected as a Top 20 Toy for 2002-2003 by
The Lion & Lamb Project, an initiative to stop the marketing
of violence to children. Every kit has been designed,
tested, and refined by GEMS staff for maximum fun and learning
potential. Kits we've created include:
Fizzy Foamy Science
Jiggly Gems and Crystal Creations
Soda Pop Science
Messages from Space
Sand Castle Science
My First Chemistry Kit
Ice Cream Science
In developing this series, our goal was to capture the educational
excitement that GEMS is famous for and bring it into the homes
of young people everywhere. These activities provide hours of
family fun while developing inquiry skills and building positive
attitudes toward science and learning. Check back here
from time to time for news on new kits as they are introduced.
These kits can be found in toy and educational stores throughout
the country, or by contacting our kit publisher, Scientific Explorer.
