This is a wonderful kit demonstrating the science behind small (nano) particles, and how the chemical properties of the nanoparticles can translate into (larger) real world effects or applications.

Great fun my son loves it. When the kids saw it on the soccer field the playground emptied out and all the kids came to watch and launch the rocket.

The 4M Water Rocket Kit is really cool - teens will love to build their own water rocket with a recycled soda bottle. The power of the water pressure on this rocket blasts it up to 90 feet in the air - teens who enjoy science projects and experiments will want to do this over and over.

Really awesome Lego kit (I think I've played with it more than my son...) Was pleasantly surprised to see it has more functionality than is immediately apparent from the box/blurb. All the aspects from building, coding and play are well covered.
