Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

You can find lists and guides for science and technology centers in large cities around the world and detailed local science guides for more than 25 U.S. cities. There are many ideas for classroom- or home-based science experiments across all scientific fields that are well-organized and clearly presented. Some site updating is needed, like an announcement for for "National Engineers Week 2008." The site would be greatly enhanced by more kid-friendly text and online interaction.

Online interaction: Kids can leave comments about their experience with various experiments.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
