All the science experiments were a hit with our kids. Our crystal grew well, and my son continues to explore the rock collection well after we did the experiments. My son enjoyed digging for “fool’s gold” and was excited about the prospect of a tiny bit of real gold mixed in. All of my kids were excited about the volcano; they insisted we keep the mold so we can do another one again some day. The only experiment we didn’t try was the bottle tornado, because my toddler got a hold of that piece and it was never seen again. No fault of the product, though!

Excellent gift item choice! We purchased this for our six year old because he was begging for one that his older brother had. So we sat down and did the more complex experiments for him and he’s just loved every minute of it. It’s exciting and engaging! This is the third set we’ve used from National Geographic and they’ve always made us happy. They’re easy to work with, include everything and are fun to do together as a family.

I bought this kit during a Black Friday sale this year and do not regret it. there are a lot of different activities. We just did the excavation in the gold block to retrieve to fool's Gold pieces for the rock collection and we were not disappointed. The photo show the rock collection that came with it, including the two fool's Gold pieces which were quite large. large. My kids really liked it. We still haven't done the other activities, but they look fun. it's a great hands-on science activity for kids of all ages. My one advice is when you're digging out the fool's Gold pieces to take your time and be careful because they are fragile and can break easily. when we dug them out I just soaked them in some warm water and used my dish brush to get them clean.

First of all, an amazing kit for the price. The company who produces these for National Geographic went above and beyond to make things right when an item was missing from our kit. Highly recommend!
