Product Description:

Smithsonian combines 6 great activities into one kit to let you sample projects in environmental science, physical science, and earth science. Grow a crystal, build a weather station and a model of the earth, dig out the bones of a dinosaur, assemble a volcano, and a habitat dome for bugs. A 35" x 23" poster is included - the instructions for each project is printed on the back of the poster. This kit is a good option for the student who has interests in multiple areas of science, and they want to dabble with a variety of projects. ~ Donna

Eco Dome Habitat:
There is no suction whatsoever in the bug catcher. Was it only included as an afterthought, or to appeal to kids?

The pipe used needs a stopper halfway down the pipe. As is, the baking powder settles into the bottom and when activated with vinegar, there's too much space to travel and the bottom layer is never even activated. Its result is a very lame fizzle.

Crystal Growing:
First of all, why would the amount of chemical powder not be adjusted so that it required a common measurement of water? 3.38oz.? 2.29 oz? And the 2.29 oz. is boiling water that's being measured. Can you imagine the problem there? Wouldn't an even tablespoon amount have been better? And then we're to measure out 1/3 teaspoon of the powder. Well, this is science and we're trying to be exact. I would like for someone to invent a 1/3 teaspoon measurer, because it doesn't exist now. After all of this, we didn't even have crystal growth after four days. Complete failure.
