It’s been nearly twenty years since Esther Novis, a mother of five and a former Harvard-trained biologist, started The Young Scientists Club as a summer science camp for her then 5-year-old son. And, for more than a decade The Young Scientists Club has been developing science kits and games featuring The Magic School Bus under license from Scholastic, based on the bestselling book series written by Joanna Cole and illustrated by Bruce Degen. With the world of STEM-infused learning and play becoming more and more popular in recent years, The Magic School Bus has also become a big hit on Netflix – reimagined as The Magic School Bus Rides Again with Fiona Frizzle taking over at the wheel to inspire a new generation of kids. Now, just in-time for the holiday season, The Young Scientists Club has unleashed a collection of a dozen new and updated Magic School Bus Science Kits that are Holiday Wish Guide™ Picks – perfect for gifting to scientists ages 5-12.
The updated science kits feature Arnold, Ralphie and the 5th grade class who “take chances, make mistakes, get messy!”
These new and updated kits join a robust lineup that includes additional kits that were released earlier this year and feature interests such as space, dinosaurs, electricity, magnets, the human body and the ever-popular slime, gel and goop! See the full range and purchase direct through The Young Scientists Club website, or look for them through specialty retailers and Amazon.
