Lavashot| 3-In-1 Earth Science Diy Stem Kits for Kids
Lava Shot is an educational learning kit based on geology. Introducing young kids to the wonders of mining rocks, forming crystals, and experimenting with volcanic eruptions, the Lava Shot kit instills an interest and ultimately, a love for geology. The kit comprises three toys, each of which contributes to making learning fun and something to look forward to.
Carefully put together by Soham and powered by Moonshot Jr, Lava Shot aims to introduce children to geology using curated items that must be assembled to be used.
This kit gives young ones the perfect start to a fascination with science. Made by a child for other children, it simplifies complex concepts into easily understandable lessons. Plus, it adds dollops of fun, which as we all know, is key to effective learning!
Lava Shot contains a rock and gem mining toy, a crystal growing toy, and a volcano eruption toy.
#1 Rock and Gem Mining Toy
Excavate your own gems and add them to your rock collection with this fun rock and gem mining toy. The kit contains natural crystals of various colors, hidden within a chunk of plaster.
Since ancient times, it has been widely believed that crystals possess mystic power which could bring good luck and health. A bag is provided in this kit simply to choose one of the crystals from your collection and send it as a gift to your friends and family. If you have a rock tumbler at home, you may tumble the crystals and have them polished. They will look more shiny and transparent.
The rock and gem mining toy contains a plaster block with rocks and minerals, a hammer, a dowel, a magnifier, and a brush – everything you need to make and feel like a true geologist! By digging out the rocks and minerals, you’ll learn how they’re ‘mined’ in reality.
#2 Crystal Growing Toy
Crystal growing is a popular hobby and those who have greater success do so because they keep detailed notes. Marked down the tenure of the experiment and every nitty-gritty related to it, so that when you try again, you can grow bigger and better crystals.
With this toy, you do not only learn to grow crystals but also observe the different factors that influence the growth of crystals and the subtle changes they undergo.
#3 Volcano Eruption Toy
The volcano eruption toy is a great way to see a volcano in action. It encourages creative learning and is completely hands-on. Forming the volcanic structure and thereafter arranging for the explosion could be a real exciting DIY activity even for those who may not be too much into the subject of geology.
With each toy and the entire kit based on STEAM learning, Lava Shot gets kids excited about science and the natural world. Made by a child for other children, it taps into their curiosity, creativity, and innovation.
