Activities are not only science-based, but they consider the context of the world that children live in. They incorporate other interests that kids may have, like fantasy, history, creativity, construction and more. Wild Science™ represents a fresh, innovative and edgy new way to introduce kids to age appropriate scientific concepts while also having fun.
Designed for children ages six and up, the Wild! Science™ line is one of the world’s most consistently awarded range of science kits, designed by an industry-leading children’s science and technology edutainer and learning specialist with over 30 years in the field. Every Wild Science™ kit comes complete with easy-to-understand, colorful instruction booklets that instantly engage children by connecting their interaction with the science kits to human stories featuring “Dr. Wild”. The instruction books are irreverent, educational and age-appropriate, using topics like history and mystery to set the scene for the start of discovery activity. Additionally, each kit includes step by step instructions that range from easy activities with guaranteed success, to challenging activities that engage problem solving skills and application of knowledge.
