TOPS Science .org

Comes highly recommended from our household. For years, my son thought homeschooling was doing science experiments. Lucky I found these guys and was never short of ideas again. Because they use ordinary household items in their experiments, and not hard-to-find special resources, their experiments make science come alive, as a part of everyday real life. And they deliver to Japan!!
