Children in this age range are able to reason, use logic, think about cause and effect and take information acquired in one context to use in another.  So this is an ideal age to inspire children and build an interest in science.

The range of science kits from Thames and Kosmos are perfect for this age group, with small single experiments that make great birthday party gifts or stocking fillers through to full science kits that support the curriculum in a fun interesting way.  There is something for everyone with kits in biology, chemistry and physics.
