Begin a lifetime of scientific investigation and understanding with 25 fun experiments in five key areas: nature, physics, chemistry, air, and water.

Learn what plants need to grow, build a barometer, see how water climbs, watch plants sweat, and investigate plant propagation. Discover how a magnifying glass enlarges, how colors mix, how static electricity attracts, how sundials tell time, and how a motion picture works. Investigate air pressure, air flow, hovercraft, paper airplanes, and suction. Write secret messages, float a paper clip, blow super bubbles, observe capillary action, and test displacement. Build a soap-driven boat, mix oil and water, experiment with evaporation, paint with sugar, and watch a balloon inflate itself.

The first kit in the Little Labs line, Stepping Into Science teaches science fundamentals with step-by-step, hands-on experiments, while also introducing children to the scientific method itself.

The pictoral guidebook has just enough text to reinforce vocabulary and aid in language learning, and also to advise parents and adult supervisors. Spanish instructions are included to assist native Spanish speakers, and may also be used as a resource to help native Spanish speakers learn English, or native English speakers learn Spanish while conducting the experiments.

Ages 5 and up.
