My oldest son recently turned eight, and turning eight certainly comes with a lot of changes. My son has now entered his tween years, and his tween birthday wishes were quite different from last year. My son wished for a helicopter and science stuff. All summer he has been doing countless science experiments in the kitchen, and during the first weeks of school he walked around with an old book about science experiments in the hope that his teachers would want to do science experiments in class. When I discovered a science kit from the Secret Science Team, I knew it would be a great birthday gift for a tween boy.

When my son unwrapped his gift, he was absolutely amazed. The Secret Science Team Science Kit had been customized with his name and address. It did not take long before my son took on a new identity – he was now Secret Agent RoRo. 

The Secret Science Team’ Science Kit is a great creation for any budding scientist or detective, as it comes equipped with everything a young scientist needs to solve a mystery by doing science experiments. Agent RoRo’s first task was to find out, who had broken in to a Sports Store. He received an official brief from the Secret Science Team that had his name on it.

To solve the mystery he received a very official looking police report, a magnifying glass, crime scene samples, samples of textile fibers and soil from the suspect in the case, fingerprints and the necessary science equipment to help him analyze the crime scene samples. 

After doing the science experiments and solving the case, Agent RoRo was instructed to enter his findings at the Secret Science Team’s website.
Agent RoRo was so excited about his new science kit that he brought the police report to school to show his teachers, and he loves using the test tubes, ph paper and magnifying glass for new special assignments. 
The Secret Science Kit included:
  • Storyline sheet
  • Case file instruction booklet
  • Data recording sheet
  • Fabric specimens 
  • Fingerprint specimens and cards
  • Simulated soil samples
  • Test tubes with caps 
  • Test tube rack
  • pH paper.
  • Magnifying glass
 The only thing we needed for the science experiments was to add to water.

There are several different Secret Science Team Science Kits to choose between, and there are even special party kits, which will make sure to keep the party entertained.

The Best Gifts for Tween Boys: 
The Secret Science Team Science Kits from Ectropy Science are the perfect gifts for tween boys and science fans. As a mother of a curious tween, I am giving the Secret Science Team Science kits my highest recommendations, as my son’s science kit has made a lasting impression. My son did not complain about not getting video games as the rest of his classmates, and his classmates even came to me to ask, if it was true that he really had received a special assignment from the Secret Science Team. The Secret Science Team helps get your child involved in the world around him or her, it fosters curiosity and it makes children love science.
