Science Mad! Science Kits Review & Giveaway

Finding toys and activities which spark children’s curiosity and allow them to follow their passions while having fun is a win-win for both parents and children. I love to see my kids exploring their interests and developing their knowledge, and the Science Mad! Science kits enable them to do just that. 

These are great quality Science kits for older kids of age 10+ who would like to go deeper into scientific experiments and offer a brilliant opportunity for kids to be able to do just that. 

Let’s take a closer look at some of the Science Mad Science kits available from Smyths

Science Mad! Science kits for kids

The really great thing that stands out about the Science Mad! collection of products is that it offers kids real scientific equipment and enables them to use real kits with working features. 

Using these kits, children are guided through fun experiments in the fields of chemistry, physics, electronics and more. I also learned a few things while supervising, so it is fun for the whole family and definitely a brilliant way of exploring hands on learning for kids who have a natural curiosity for Science and a thirst for exploring and gaining knowledge. 

Having the ability to use real equipment in a way that is not over simplified really helps to build children’s confidence and develop that feeling of being comfortable in the Science lab which will give them a great basis to go forward and keep studying. It’s brilliant that this range gives them the tools to drive that passion for science at home, and spark the curiosity to see what else is out there. 

As well as being educational, the Science Mad! kits are plenty of fun too, with loads more options available that we would love to explore like a Build Your Own Vacuum Cleaner Kit, a Circuit Lab Kit and a 5 in 1 Weather Station Kit. There is also a Rock Tumbler kit which is definitely something that has caught our eye as that would be so interesting to try out. 

Science Mad! Chemistry Lab (RRP £32.99)

Kids can discover the wonders of chemistry with this well-equipped laboratory set with an excellent selection of 10 different chemicals. It includes a real methylated spirit burner to help when learning about the fascinating chemical reactions involving heat. You do need to add some of the ingredients which do not come included in the box so take a read through, organise which experiments you are going to start with and then get prepared.
