This science kit is filled with most of the materials you need for doing the experiments in Apologia's Exploring Creation with Physical Science course, 3rd edition. This kit is not compatible with the 2nd edition of Apologia's physical science curriculum. Make an electromagnet, experiment with friction, and more!
Throughout Apologia's Physical Science course, your student will conduct various controlled experiments, consisting of observing specific problems, asking strategic questions, formulating their own hypotheses, conducting experiments, and analyzing data to see if their results support or negate their hypotheses.
The hands-on activities in this course can be completed with this Apologia Physical Science kit, along with some easy-to-find household items.
