Build a Martian colony with this botany and engineering kit!
Set up a biodome, create Martian soil, witness germination, make plant nutrients, create clean water and learn how plants produce air.
Your Martian botanists will also create a mini compost, enriching the "soil" to grow food. Additional experiments teach kids how to compare "breath" vs "air", test for UV radiation and explore the effects of fossil fuels and food cloning.
The kit includes high-quality ingredients packaged in no-spill containers, safety equipment and a full-color education and instruction booklet.
Note: Seeds are not included.
This Wild Environmental Science STEM set helps kids develop analytical and problem-solving skills in an imaginative setting.
PS-- if you and your kids are fans of the Matt Damon movie or book by Andy Weir "The Martian”, this is an excellent way to bring some of the science into your kitchen!
WARNING: This set contains chemicals that may be harmful if misused. Read cautions on individual containers carefully. Not to be used by children except under adult supervision.
