No matter how old our children are, we all love to see them learn, especially when it comes to fascinating science concepts that could help inspire them -- and maybe even launch the career of their dreams. We included sets here that are suitable for a variety of ages, from the Learning Resources Wow & Wonder for preschoolers and kindergartners to the Thames & Kosmos Nanotechnology Kit, which will successfully captivate many a teenage mind. Although Make Your Own Slime isn’t quite as scientific as many of the others, it affords a fun way for kids to learn about mixing ingredients for a desired effect.
