Timberdoodle's review
Undoubtedly your children will need to rely much more on alternative energy than you ever have. As a teaching parent you have the opportunity to give them the understanding and terminology behind it, and you won't find a better starting point than with this all new Power House: Green Essentials Edition. Thames and Kosmos has been selling alternative energy kits for over ten years now and Power House: Green Essentials Edition is the new edition of their bestselling Power House kit.

However, Power House: Green Essentials Edition, is targeted towards a younger audience of ages 10 and up. It will still teach your children about alternative energy and sustainable living, by conducting thirty of their best experiments and their ten most important building projects from the original Power House kit. These include the powerhouse itself, a greenhouse, a solar cell array, a passive solar collector, a solar oven, an air conditioner, a refrigerator, a hydrometer, a lemon battery, and a wind power generator. Like the original Power House this all new Power House: Green Essentials Edition is produced by a secular company so you should expect sporadic references to evolutionary dating, mild politically/ecologically-correct statements, and an occasional plea from some of the participants to live for the fun of today. The kit comes with full-color, illustrated 64 page Spanish/English Experiment Manual with 30 experiments and 10 building activities.

For the careful scientist June 2, 2012
Reviewer: Jen  
We bought this a few years ago and held onto it for several years before finally re-selling it. I have 4 boys who are HARD on things and this kit is made for the CAREFUL, thoughtful scientist. I would have LOVED it as a child! But the point to this kit was not for me to do the activities and my restless children to watch. I also did not enjoy the idea of hovering over them for every activity. Clever ideas, nice hands-on activities, but not meant to withstand the rough and tumble ever-curious minds who are constantly taking apart and re-assembling everything in the house in as many ways as they can. Everything else about it is great - which is why I gave it 4 stars, and why I finally decided to re-sell it to a very gentle, patient family who will do every activity and was extremely grateful to be able to buy it for a discounted price.
