Thames & Kosmos Volcanoes and Earthquakes Science Kit

Product information

Volcanoes are one of the most terrifying natural phenomena on the planet. With this set's awesome ability to build your own volcano and see how they work, your child will fall in lava!
 
Earthquakes shake the continents and oceans, and volcanoes spew out the molten insides of our planet. You can learn about the inner-workings of Earth, by making a model volcano with plaster-based lava that hardens after each eruption.
 
Feel free to trigger as many eruptions are you like, as the cone builds up by itself, like a real volcano. You can even build a working seismograph and fake some earthquakes to measure them like real scientists. The plate tectonics puzzle and geological globe will help teach how the natural disasters operate.
 
A full-colour, 48-page instruction manual is included, so your child will know exactly how to work this explosive science kit.

Brand story

Thames & Kosmos was founded in 2001 by a science museum director and her son, who saw the great need and demand for better science education materials — resources for parents and their children that are more engaging, more effective, more relevant, and more fun.

Thames & Kosmos operates as the exclusive arm of parent company, Franckh-Kosmos Verlags-GmbH & Co. KG — Kosmos for short — based in Stuttgart, Germany. Founded in 1822, Kosmos operated solely as a book publisher until the 1920s, when the company published its first science kits aimed at explaining the world of science to children and young adults by bringing it to life with hands-on experiments.

Generations of European children have discovered their enthusiasm for science through Kosmos science kits. Since 2001, Thames & Kosmos and Kosmos have teamed up to develop science kits for children in the United States and other English speaking markets around the world.
