Editors Notes

Horrible Science fully embrace the icky side of science. Rather than it all being about boring facts and figures, they prefer to present kids with gory and highly fascinating details that are a bit unusual and not often found in stuffy text books. They attempt to emphasise the drama, excitement and wonder of science to fully engage kids and get them passionate about the subject.

They have sold over 4 million books in the UK alone, with them being available in 24 different countries.

Horrible Science Experiments, Assorted 3 5 2 2
Horrible Science Experiments Bought for my nephew for Christmas , so know he will love it, will also keep him quiet whilst he does the experiments. Arrived quickly and as advertised 19 December 2012
Disappinting This is ridiculous. There are 2 products on offer here which I really wasn't aware of. One is the explosive experiments kit - as in the main picture - which was the gift I wanted to buy.The other is the one with cockroach soap etc. That's the one I got. There's no way of saying which one you want. Now I have to sort out returning it sigh. 18 November 2012
