Activities are designed to guide students to discover concepts but are styled so the instructor knows what equipment is needed for each activity.
- The kit comes in a heavy duty carry-case for ease of storage
- Simple to set-up with all components easily accessible
- A full manual with detailed activities for both the teacher and the student is included along with scientific background on each topic
