‘Let’s Explore’ Kits – Perfect for Curious Children

Support your child’s learning by encouraging them to perform their own experiments and see for themselves what cause and effect means. 

Our ‘Let’s Explore’ Kits put the fun into learning and let children carry out exciting experiments at home or at school, with family, teachers and friends. These kits are aligned to the MOE Science syllabus and adopt the inquiry-based approach to learning Science that is central to the Science curriculum framework.

We have three education kits for kids: Magnetism, Electricity and Chemistry. Accompanying each kit is a well-illustrated Young Science Explorer Guidebook with step-by step information to help children conduct the experiments. Parents and teachers can help facilitate the experiments with the support of the Facilitator’s Guide.

‘Let’s Explore’ My First Lab Kits – for younger curious kids

These kits are scaled-down versions from the original ‘Let’s Explore’, intended to nurture a passion for Science learning from a young age. 

We have 4 My First Lab kits: MagnetismElectricityVolcanic Eruption and Water Filtration.

Each kit comes with a basic set of components and an Instruction Guide, designed to give first hands-on experience to young learners on fundamental topics in Science. It excites children’s curiosity as they explore amazing Science facts in a fun way and learn the skills that scientists use to study and make sense of the world around them.

    Air Kit

    Air is invisible – but it is all around us! It serves many purposes in life – for example, air keeps fire burning, while moving air powers windmills. Learn about the importance of air and its functions with the new ‘Let’s Explore’ Air Kit.

    Simple Machine Kit

    Use this simple machine to change the direction as well as the strength of a force. Try out the activities in this kit and learn how different machines can help you expand your force through pushing or pulling. 

    Electricity Kit

    In a fun and challenging way, this kit guides you in understanding electric circuits and what affects the current flow. Learning about electricity can be electrifying and illuminating!

    Magnetism Kit

    Observe how magnets behave and interact with other materials. You will learn about magnetism and the properties of magnets in a progressive, fun and challenging way.

    Chemistry Kit

    This kit guides you through each exploration with probing questions, accompanying fun facts and real-life applications. Begin with the simple exploration of materials and progress to more complex concepts like mass, crystallisation and acidity. 

    My First Lab on Magnetism
    With the activities in this kit, children can understand what a magnet is, learn about magnetic poles, attraction and repulsion, and have fun with marble and ring magnets.

    My First Lab on Electricity

    This kit gives meaning to the daily action of turning on and off switches. Children can build simple circuits and switches, explore batteries and bulbs in series and parallel, and test for conductors and insulators.

    My First Lab on Volcanic Eruption

    Children can see a volcanic eruption with their own eyes while learning about lava flow, chemical reactions and the impact of volcanic eruptions. This will enhance their understanding of the advantages of Singapore’s geographical location.  

    My First Lab on Water Filtration 

    By using a simple water filtration process, children learn how to purify muddy water and have a better understanding on how we get clean water from our taps and why we need to keep our waterways clean.
