Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good potential, but poor instructions On the face of it this kit is great. It looks good, the kids love playing with it and it is very easy to use and wire up. The biggest problem is the instruction manual. Although it very clearly explains how to connect up a circuit (1 to 33, 4 to 51 etc etc) it doesn't explain how the circuits work or what the components do. This is a HUGE omission and seriously limits the educational value in my opinion. Some of the circuit design is a bit dubious too, meaning you can damage components due to overloading which I think is unacceptable in a child's kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for helping with KS3 physics study. I bought this unit to help my grandson with his work on Physics and it is working well since he is finding it easier to understand circuitry. I think it's well worth the price.

Can you confirm there is no accompanying manual, as one reviewer has stated?

Asked by: houseofloxley
This is incorrect there should be a manual, the reviewer obviously had one sent without which if this happens for any reason we can send you a replacement manual.

I too am concerned about the possible lack of a manual. &nbsp;My great nephew is 8 y.o. and his dad, my nephew, is no electronics expert!

Asked by: H J Hill
The manuals are actually quite good for these, once you learn how to read them, it is a case of connecting the wires based on the numbers.

Is the experimental science workshop suitable for an 11 year old or is it foor younger ages.
