About Secret Science Team
With Secret Science Team Kits, children receive personalized experiment kits in the mail, help solve fun mysteries with at-home experiments, then enter the results on the Secret Science Team website. If the results are incorrect, the site provides helpful hints for trying the experiment again. Kids feel like real investigators as they crack “top secret” cases—while building science skills in the process.
Secret Science Team Kits are educational and ideal for children ages 9 to 12. Secret Science Team Kits improve reading comprehension and problem solving while teaching important concepts such as how to develop and test a hypothesis.
This isn’t the chemistry set you remember from your own childhood. Instead, each kit includes an enthralling “whodunit” narrative with clues, easy-to-follow experiment instructions and more. Secret Science Team Kits offer hands-on learning through mystery-solving. And what kid doesn’t love a good mystery?
You won’t have to run to the store for any missing ingredients—each kit includes everything necessary to conduct the experiment (except water).

My Opinion: We received the Ectopy Secret Science Team Assignment 1001 and my grandson loves it! This is what this assigment is about:
"Someone has been making and selling pirated copies of the MazTech Ultimate SK8 video game. The Sterling Police have just announced a major breakthrough in the case and need your help to break up the piracy ring. A pirated copy of the game has been found with a white powder on it. Join the Ectropy Secret Science Team, identify the powder and help solve this mystery!! Contents include: storyline sheet, case file instruction booklet, data recording sheet, hand held magnifier, test tubes with caps and test tube rack, test powders and other reagents."
I love this because the test powders and other reagents are salt, vinegar, sugar, baking soda, citric acid(lemon salt), etc., but he is really creating experiments. He also loves that he can log on and check his results!
Every kid loves to solve a mystery. So what better way to get your kid interested in science? Children can feel like real investigators by helping to solve fun mysteries using science kits.
One (1) of my readers will receive a Ectopy Secret Science Team Kit for their little scientist!
