RADMASTE Primary Microscience Kit for Learners

RADMASTEā„¢ Primary Microscience Kit

The Primary Microscience Kit incorporates small scale components for physics, chemistry and biology to enable primary school learners to safely complete a range of integrated science activities. At Junior Primary level there are several activities on Air, Water and Soil whilst at Senior Primary level there are more advanced activities addressing the integrated sciences (e.g. static and current electricity, acids and bases, magnetism, etc.). The kits are easy for learners to use (individually or in groups) and convenient for teachers to implement. The supporting worksheets (see alongside) contain detailed instructions in picture format to make it easier for younger learners to carry out the activities.
