Hydroponics is the method of growing plants in the nutrients that they need instead of soil. The plant foods are simply put into water instead and it makes a solution for the plants to live in. Vegetables, flowers and herbs can all be grown in water.
Hydroponics is an easy hands-on way to get students interested in science at a young age. It’s something that really draws them in, something they can use, along with the principles of biology, chemistry and physics.
The Growth Cycle of a Plant
From germination, to seedlings, to vegetative growth, all the way to harvest – this guide shows
kids the full lifecycle of a plant.
What Plants Need to Grow
By growing in a hydroponic environment, the “cloak” of using soil is removed – kids will learn
how proper nutrition, water, and light help a plant to thrive.
Where Food REALLY Comes From
No longer will food be something that just magically shows up on their plates. By growing edible
leafy greens, your child will learn exactly what happens before the food they eat hits their
mouths every meal.
Seeds: Choi Sum – Beginner
Net Pot: To hold germination sponge and plant
Clay Pebbles: Used to cover sponge to prevent algae from forming
Germination Sponge: Pre-cut cubes x 4

Experiment guide with step-by-step instructions and easy to understand science explanations
As you may know, DNA is present in every cell of all plants and animals and determines all genetic traits of the individual organism.
With the Fruit DNA experiment, you’ll extract, isolate, and observe the DNA of a fruit in a matter of minutes.
If you have a green thumb but minimal garden space, why not create your own mini-world full of lush and beautiful plants by making your own terrarium? Terrariums are easy-to-make, low-maintenance gardens, and can last almost indefinitely with minimal water.
Fun way to get kids interested in botany. Kids love to learn and see how things work. They will learn about botany (the biology of plants), how eco-systems work and will see first-hand how seeds, soil, sun, and water work together to transform into beautiful plants.
The Moshi Mushi Growing Kit is a kid friendly, easy-to-cultivate way to enjoy growing mushrooms at home. This kit is made up of a strong producing commercial oyster strain that produces many mushrooms. It comes fully colonized and ready to fruit. These are great mushroom to sauté and serve on anything. Grey oyster mushroom has many health benefits, including being just as dense in protein as meat and providing excellent benefits to the immune system due to its antioxidants and high in vitamins properties. The required temperature range for your kit is 18-30 Degree Celsius. You can harvest fresh mushrooms up to at least 3-4 cycles.
Growing bacteria at home is actually pretty simple. With adult supervision, kids in grade 3 and up can experiment with bacteria found in the air, on household surfaces, and even on their own hands!
You might be wondering: Aren’t bacteria too tiny to see?
Well, usually yes.
But with this bacteria growing kit, you can culture microbe colony that’s large enough to see without a microscope. Kit includes prepared agar, Petri dishes, bacteria growing guide, and more.
