Why we offer experiment kits
We began putting together experiment kits after we got repeated requests for the liquid bluing used in our Intro to Science program. The first go-around we assembled about 20 kits around our kitchen table. They were so successful that we decided to try a few more the following year.
Now, we put together 9 different kits over a two month period early each spring. It takes up two rooms to store the supplies and fill the kits, but each one is still packed by hand. Sure we could outsource these kits and save ourselves the trouble, but then the price would be much higher. Plus, they would not include many of the items we currently do.
We have decided to keep the experiment kit assembly in-house, so that we can provide you with the best possible product at the most reasonable price.
Key features of our experiment kits
Our experiment kits are designed to be:
- Time-saving – We include the hard to find and difficult to obtain materials in each of our experiment kits. So you can spend your time actually doing the experiments, not hunting for the supplies.
- Affordable – We source the materials for economical prices and then pass the savings onto you! The price of our kits vary because we keep it as close the the actual cost as possible. We know what it is like to homeschool and are committed as a company to help you obtain science materials at an affordable price.
- Environmentally friendly – As a company we try to do our best to reduce our negative impact on the environment. For our experiment kits, we reduce the amount of plastic waste we create by not bagging the supplies according to week and by using recycled paper packing materials. We also use only one box made from recycled materials to ship and house the materials.
On top of those three features, the price of every experiment kit includes priority mail shipping to the continental US!
Future plans for experiment kits
As we look forward to the future, we plan on adding to our experiment kit line as requested by our customers. So if you would like to see an experiment kit for our Sassafras programs or for our science lapbooks, please let us know in the comments below.
We will also continue to adjust and update our current experiment kits as needed. In other words, if there is something you would like to see in one of our kits, drop us a line and let us know what it is!
Above all, we are committed as a company to help you obtain science materials for your experiments at an affordable price!
