So, for many of us who have children we would of heard of Project Mc2. If you haven’t its a great show on Netflix, it promotes to girls that it’s cool to be smart and love everything S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths). My daughter is already a massive fan of not only the show but also of everything S.T.E.A.M and it’s actually the career path that she wants to choose.
Project Mc2 is a group of four super smart girls who combined their love of science and their spy skills to undertake missions for a top-secret organisation, NOV8 (innovate). The Project Mc2 Lab Kit* is the first step to becoming a cool agent just like the girls. The kit appears to be an oversized lab bag but unzips to reveal the ultimate collection of science apparatus and fun.
The Project Mc2 Lab Kit comes with over 30 pieces of equipment, including test tubes, funnels, lab glasses, pipette, beaker, PH strips and even a cool little ring. There is also a booklet which has over 15 experiments in it. You can also do many of your own experiments too.
The only downside I will say we had with the lab kit was that we had to go out an buy quite a few things to do the experiments with as we didn’t have them ingredients in our kitchen and wouldn’t necersarily buy them otherwise. However we didn’t mind due to the fact the kids absolutely loved making things like a cloud in a jar and various other experiments.
The microscope also needs to have batteries, they are the small watch style ones so it’s yet again something we didn’t have in the house and had to source. I think for the price it would have been better to actually include them and maybe a few little basic ingredients to just get the kids up and running straight away. Because, as we know with most children they can’t do waiting and want to play with a new toy as soon as possible.
Other than that I can say I highly recommend the Project Mc2 Lab Kit for your budding scientist(s) as it really is super educational and even more fun. Even us as adults were loving it and it was great the whole family could get stuck in around the table creating things.
