This sounded like a great idea since I was teaching a class of 15 and wouldn't have to round up all the supplies but would already have them available; however, several of the experiments didn't work because the off brand products that were used in the kit. The antacids barely fizzed and the 9-volt batteries didn't work. Very disappointing when the kids are excited to do the experiments and then they fail! In the end, not worth it.
Thank you so much for putting this kit together! I love only having to worry about getting supplies like peroxide and vinegar before class each week. I enjoy the ease of pulling out the bags of supplies, bu Module.
I bought this product for the convenience of having lab supplies all pulled together for our homeschool science experiments. I am unimpressed by the quality of the materials. My son was performing an experiment in our co-op and the antacid tablets "did not work," so he had to borrow some from another student. Another family had a broken thermometer. Most of the items are not "hard to find." If you want the convenience of a kit, I recommend acquiring Apologia's list over the summer and compiling your own kit ahead of time. You will have the convenience without the cost and at a better quality. I plan to do this when we study Biology onward.
I would def recommend purchasing the kits for any Apologia course! The kits will save you much time. Inside the kit, you will find individually pre-packaged zip lock bags labeled for each experiment; so, all you have to do is grab the bag for the experiment you are working on.
