My daughter absolutely loves science. It’s one of her best subjects in school and not something we have to press her on. Stars, Fossils, Science Experiments. You name it, she loves it. I’m always on the hunt to find educational items for both the girls, but when I found out about the Nancy B’s Science Club Moonscope and Star Gazers Activity Journal, I knew it was a must have for my daughter.
Science isn’t just for boys, and sometimes the products we do find in the store are more boy centered than girls, so it’s nice to see that a company like Educational Insights and designer Nancy Balter recognizes that science can be for girls as well.
Nancy Balter designed Nancy B’s Science club because like my daughter, growing up she had a love for science. She had dreams of becoming an astronaut and growing up even attended space camp (something my daughter would love to do!). After graduating from college she became a science teacher herself, which inspired the idea of science toys and Nancy B’s Science Club.
When our MoonScope arrived immediately my daughter tore open the box and couldn’t wait to get the scope set up, unfortunately she had a little learning experience in patience, and broke it right out of the box by not assembling it correctly. Thankfully Educational Insights sent me another one a few days later, this time instructions were read, and the MoonScope was put together in a short amount of time, correctly, without any broken pieces.
The MoonScope includes not only the scope itself, but a tripod, moon filter, 20mm glass eyepiece, 4mm glass eyepiece, a moon filter, and a 22 page Sky Gazer’s Activity Journal. The Moonscope is easy to transport, in fact the girls can’t wait to show their grandpa and bring it to his house when we visit next week. The journal is great, it helps the girls discover the different moons and any questions they may have about the stars and changes. The tripod also includes a built-in red LED light so that they can read the journal and moon map in the dark.
The Nancy B’s Science Club Moonscope is a huge hit in our household, if you have girls (or even boys) who enjoy science or are curious about the night skies, this is a must have!
The Moonscope is suggested to be used for ages 8+ you can find it and the entire line of Nancy B’s Science Club products available for purchase at EducationalInsights.com, Amazon.com and Toys R Us, this is perfect for a birthday or Christmas gift!
