You've heard of Steve Spangler right? He is an amazing scientist that has the ability to liven up any science concept with super fun, hands-on experiments that both kiddos and adults can really enjoy.
He now has a monthly subscription service offering a box of science experiments delivered straight to your door each month!
The Spangler Science Club features highly interactive experiments and hands-on activities created by Steve Spangler. His easy to follow lessons serve as an introduction to more in-depth experiments and challenges that push the learner’s creativity to the next level. The experiments are likely to fizz, pop, bubble or erupt into something that is guaranteed to fill the room with oohs & ahhhs. Each box is filled with Steve Spangler’s unique blend of experiences that inspire wonder, boost creativity, enhance problem-solving skills and make learning fun.
The Spangler Science Club is powered by the creative team at www.stevespanglerscience.com. The Denver-based company has a long-standing history of developing educational toys, science kits and resources for parents and educators since the early 1990s. You’ll find some of their most popular toys and kits in large retail stores like Target, Toys R’ Us and in over 2,500 specialty stores throughout the country.
So, what do you get in a box?
Each month you’ll receive a box filled with the science tools and resources needed to explore real-world STEM (an integration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics) activities. The are perfect for children in grades K-6.
Each box is focused around a themed experience designed by Steve Spangler himself that combines the perfect mix of critical thinking, tinkering and fun. Each kit comes with two instruction guides – one for the scientist and a top secret document for the adult science helper.
The easy to follow step-by-step instructions guide the learner through the scientific method while providing open-ended activities to promote further learning. The adult helper’s top secret document contains the science explanation behind all of the experiments and answers to all of the science questions.
The kit we reviewed focused on Invisible Science. We got to do experiments that allowed us to grow bacteria (safely of course:) use a black light to track down glowing germs and find hidden messages.
The kiddos had a blast with each experiment and there were enough supplies for them to do each experiment multiple times. The workbook has ample space to record observations and the instructions were easy enough for the kiddos to follow on their own. I really appreciated that the parent's guide is included so that I could explain the "why" behind each experiment.
Spangler Science Kits are a great resource for teachers, child care professionals and science enthusiasts!
