2010 Award
Nature Series: Science on a Tracking Expedition
( The Young Scientists Club $32 Score: )

We received several new science kits this year from The Young Scientists Club.  This animal tracking set rated the best with all of our testers. This kit came with enough plaster mix to make all of the animal tracks with the enclosed casts.  It also comes with information about the animals. Our testers also gave high markes to the stickers and poster set included in this kits.  Unfortunately, they did not have the same success with the solar kit. The solar panel/motor did not function--we had the same problem when we first tested this kit in house. We thought perhaps we had gotten a dud--but their review confirms the problem - which is too bad since this kit would otherwise be great fun.  The Back in Time with Dinosaurs Kit was initially received well--but it doesn't come with as much plaster as the animal tracks kit--so repeats of making the dinosaur fossils was not possible.
