Kids Learn How to “Go Green” with Young Scientists Club Kits

The kits show kids how to reduce their consumption by growing their own spinach and wheat in Science on a Gardening Adventure, understand how to reuse leftover food scraps by composting them in Magic School Bus Going Green and learn how to recycle old newspapers into new paper in Go Green Mini-Kit.

About The Young Scientists Club
Esther Novis, a mother of five and a former Harvard-trained biologist, started The Young Scientists Club a decade ago as a summer science camp for her then 5-year-old son. Friends from other parts of the country told Novis they felt cheated that their kids couldn’t go, so she naturally packaged the experiments and sent them off. The idea for a science subscription service was born! The subscription kits are now mailed monthly to thousands of children around the world and the company’s retail kits are sold in hundreds of specialty stores.

In addition to developing new products for The Young Scientists Club, this wise mom has many years of experience teaching at Phillips Academy, Andover and has written the science column for Parents Magazine plus wrote science experiments for the new science curriculum by McGraw-Hill Publishing.
