CLOSED Guidecraft G97030 Modular Science Center Review and Giveaway APR $190 ENDS 8/31/10

Pin It Now!   We are going to kick off this Back to School Blog Bash with a review and Giveaway I have been just itching to share with all of you, this is a great addition to any home school classroom, or traditional classroom or even a hands on family that loves Science. We chose to review the Guide Craft Modular Science Center and are so pleased to let you know that you will have a chance to win one for your family or to donate it to your school if you so choose.
 We were so excited when this giant box was delivered, and let me tell you this is solid wood so it was rather heavy.

We opened the box immediately and dove into sorting the pieces, it looked like a giant puzzle to me.

Alyx was my helper, he loves to build things and likes to figure out how things are assembled.

There were some fascinating pieces in the box, we could not wait to figure out where the all went.
So we dragged all of the pieces out of the box and started stacking them in piles so we could start to try to make sense of them.
Then we started to try and sort them by each component.
We found the directions I am sure this will help...
Or maybe not, I am terrible at following flat directions I am more of a visual learned so we ended up resorting to looking at the finished project on the Guide Craft website. It made much more sense to me.

The top component was already assembled so this was a big help, it is an open top acrylic box that can be used for planting if you choose.

Next it was time to start assembling layer by layer


The only tools needed were the included Allen Wrench and a Phillips Screwdriver that you need to provide.
Upon completion of assembly the entire Science towers rests upon a base that is on movable casters.

There is an open compartment with a magnifying glass lid, this would be great to look at rocks, minerals or any other items you would want to get a better look at.
The next level would be great for almost anything it has 2 acrylic pull up doors, You could house a small creature in there if you really wanted to there are air holes .
The third level up is enclosed from all sides the back side has an acrylic pull up door and the front has an opening you can fit your hand through for some great hands on guessing games, you could put manipulative's in there and the kids would have to guess what it is by feeling and touch alone.

The final level is the open top acrylic box that would be neat for an herb garden or flowers to study plant life or anything of that nature, or a great sand box, that you could bury small objects in for the kids to dig for, the possibilities are endless.
The Final Product all ready for school to start.

This is my favorite new item for our newly remodeled classroom, it is very well constructed and I love how the levels just simply stack one on top of each other as it will be so easy to remove the level we want to work with and bring it to our work tables to use for hands on science studies. I have been busy writing our lesson plans for the start of school and have been researching ways to incorporate this neat new addition into our curriculum. We will be posting monthly reviews on how and what we are using this for in the coming months so be on the lookout for updates complete with pictures, on how this is enhancing our home school education.

You can purchase your very own Modular Science Center from http://www.guidecraft.com/ for $190 or you may enter below for your chance to win one to add to your Home School Classroom or maybe you would like to donate it to your child's new classroom in their traditional school, that will be completely up to you.
