Kids Develop Thinking Skills By Exploring Alien Planets
The Space Cadet Series is designed to help children ages 6 to 10 develop thinking, problem-solving and reasoning skills by exploring alien planets. Bumptz Science Carnival introduces the scientific properties of light, magnetism and buoyancy. It features over 200 built-in puzzles with three skill levels and a puzzle construction kit, 12 animated movie shorts and 20 hands-on experiments that students can print and perform at home. Another title, Snootz Math Trek, received the 1995 National Parenting Center Seal of Approval.
