Another Co-op Special Offer!

The Homeschool Buyers Co-op is pleased to announce a special Co-op offer for a twelve-month subscription to The Magic School Bus Science Club, from The Young Scientists Club.

Explore the Exciting World of Science with these Award-winning Science Kits!

The Young Scientists Club was created to fill a void of good quality science products for young children that engage boys and girls in an exciting and positive manner.

What drew us to The Young Scientists Club were the numerous awards that the company and its products have won from a variety of organizations. The Magic School Bus Science Club is the latest subscription service from The Young Scientists Club.

Join Ms. Frizzle and her students on The Magic School Bus each month in exploring one of twelve different science topics through hands-on experiments. Developed by a team of Harvard graduates, scientists, and educators, the award-winning kits will help your young scientist experience science in a fun and engaging manner.

Every month, you'll receive a science kit with a colorful lesson manual and supplies for children ages 5 to 10* to explore one new educational topic. The topics are: Acids/Bases, Air, Bacteria/Fungi, Fossils, Human Body, Light/Rainbows and Mirrors, Magnets, Solids/Liquids/Gases, Stars/Planets, Volcanoes, Water, and Weather Station.

*Note: The Young Scientists states the age range for this product as 5-12. Although we think there are 11-12 years old who would enjoy it, our impression based on member feedback is the program is likely to appeal to younger ages. If you have older kids, we suggest you check out our The Young Scientists Club Monthly Subscription Program from the same company which allows you to select your starting science topic, customize the kit sequence for the program, and select a once- or twice-a-month mailing option.

If you purchased The Magic School Bus Science Club in the past, you might consider the The Young Scientists Club Monthly Subscription Program to continue supplementing your science curriculum with award-winning science kits organized by topic.

I am using Magic School Bus for Homeschooling my 4th grader and Kindergartener. We just love the fun experiments and it is awesome to get the Magic School Bus books that coordinate with the topics to read before we do the experiments. It is a very well done product; something we look forward to receiving every month.
Debbie C., Co-op Member
I purchased the Magic School Bus Science Club for my 4 yr old daughter and husband. They love these kits. They typically do them on the weekend and it's easy to just sit down and get right to work on the experiments without any prep time. The experiments are age appropriate and so much fun.
Nicole D., Co-op Member
My kids look forward to receiving the Magic School Bus science club kits in the mail each week. I love how eager my kids are to learn more about science. The experience are fun, simple and easily adaptable to varies age. It is a wonderful addition to our homeschool program and I highly recommend it to others.
J. Kemp, Co-op Member
My son is in 2nd grade and this school year I chose to use the Magic-School-Bus curriculum. It's fun for the little ones and gives just enough depth for them to understand. We build the entire month theme around the science package. We watch the cartoons, read the books and work through the different experiments. I love that everything is planned out for me and it's easy to use. My son has loved the program and I would recommend this to anybody with kids under age of 10.
Erika, Co-op Member
Oh my goodness this product is WONDERFUL! My little girl, who is 5, looks forward to receiving our packet each month! As soon as we get it she starts asking when we can work on it and she doesn't quit until we start. It has been a very good investment and has enhanced her desire to learn more about science in general! I HIGHLY recommend it! It is so easy to use, virtually everything you need comes with it, and to top it off - it's fun!
CM, Co-op Member
These are pretty well written and well thought out. We've only gotten three so far, but so far they have all been enjoyable for my 7 year old and her 5 year old sister. There are several experiments to do in each packet, so you can fill a week or do one each week of the month.
Rebekah, Co-op Member
We have enjoyed receiving these monthly kits for several months now. We were "afraid" of how much creation information would be in them but so far there has been MINIMAL (like not even enough to think about). We look forward to them arriving and doing the experiments each month. Most of the items you need are included, except for a few things that are common household items. In my opinion, this is one of the BEST things I have ever purchased! We are having a TON of fun learning with these kits!
Dawn W., Co-op Member
We look forward to our envelope of experiments each month. We get the newsletter, find out what our subject is for the month, then we check out the book that goes with it. We read the book, watch the show that goes with it and do a couple of experiments a week, until the next one arrives. We love the kit and it has really spurred on our depth of knowledge on each of the topic.
KellyS., Co-op Member
My 6-year old granddaughter loves performing the experiments from the Magic-School-Bus kits. She is learning to enjoy science, follow directions, and the importance of and how to write her results & conclusions. Great program!
Sharon H, Co-op Member
We are very happy that we went with the Young Scientists Club Magic School House Kits. I was looking for something hands-on for my child who struggles with reading, but LOVES science. I like the straight forward and short explanations and the activities/questions that accompany each experiment. We also like watching the episodes and reading the books from the library. These kits have taken all the stress of teaching elementary science for us.
