Project Mc2 Ultimate Lab Kit – Review

Eva received the Project Mc2 Ultimate Lab Kit to review this week. She loves her Camryn Coyle Doll she reviewed earlier this week & was ecstatic to receive the Ultimate Lab Kit too. Project Mc2 is a Netflix series aimed at encouraging girls to enjoy S.T.E.A.M based activities. S.T.E.A.M stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Maths. Definitely a good choice for girls Eva’s age!

Project Mc2 Ultimate Lab Kit Contents

This fantastic lab kit comes with all the basics to get started with some fun experiments & a booklet to help you out with 30 experiments to try! Each experiment requires household ingredients you may already have or can be easily found in supermarkets. This fun lab kit really does encourage girls to enjoy experimenting & having fun, Project Mc2 is definitely a new favourite here!

Having checked out the contents of this fab kit & tried on the safety goggles & Mc2 ring, we took a look through the book of experiments to see if we had any ingredients to help us get started.

Cloud In A Jar Experiment

The Cloud in a jar experiment is the first experiment we found in the helpful booklet full of experiments. It seemed simple enough & we had all the items needed.  For this experiment, you will need an aerosol Ice Cubes & Boiling Water & the Project Mc2 beaker. We ended up making a cloud in a jar twice, the first time didn’t work out too well. Our hairspray may have sat in the cupboard a little too long, oops!

Creating A Cloud In A Jar

 

 

Trying again with my Sure spray we sprayed a little into the boiling water. We then sat the lid upside down with ice cubes on top & waited to see what happened. This experiment shows how a cloud forms, using boiling water which creates lots of warm water vapour.

Watching Our Cloud In A Jar Form

 

Cloud In A Jar Experiment

As the ice quickly cools it forms tiny water droplets AKA clouds! The aerosol spray gives water molecules something to hold on to which they need to do as they cool down. Our second attempt turned out a little bitter but our cloud definitely preferred to stay in the jar!

Eva really enjoyed this experiment & is writing a shopping list of ingredients for our next experiment. The Project Mc2 Ultimate Lab Kit is fantastic for getting girls excited about science & encouraging them to experiment. We try to encourage the girls to do things like this at home & having the Project Mc2 Ultimate Lab kit is definitely going to make that easier!

Glam Goo Accessories

 

Fantastic Fun

Eva loves these accessories packs and this one is right up her street! She couldn’t wait to get started, setting everything out neatly before she began.

 

 Eva decided to start off using the Magic coloured powder turning her goo a sparkling blue. We both love how this colour turned out with the way it shimmered and looked magical!

After adding ‘Magic Hour’ Eva Decided to add in some ‘Cosmic dust’ too. These look really cool and catch the light so magically.

To finish, Eva placed this Glam Goo into the Heart necklace accessory. She was really pleased with this and couldn’t wait to try it on and pose for a photo.

Once she was finished posing, she quickly got back to work making the other half of her Glam Goo a shimmering green with ‘Mint Skies’. I almost missed it, she was so quick to get going again!

Eva poured a mixture of sprinkles onto the table and added them to her Mint Skies Glam Goo giving it a fantastic fun mermaid theme.

After working plenty of sprinkles into the second half of the Glam Goo, Eva popped it into the rainbow accessory piece.

This fantastic fun accessory pack kept Eva busy for quite some time after creating her own mixes with the ingredients. She had a little left over too and enjoyed adding a little of everything in too! The theme of this pack was a favourite too and she can’t see what Glam Goo come up with next!

Fantastic fun
