#Giveaway Making Science Fun with the Beaker Creatures Liquid Reactor Super Lab

With summer well underway in most of the country, most parents are constantly on the lookout for activities and products that are economical and can keep kids busy and entertained for as long as possible. If there is actual educational value to the activity as well, then that makes it even better. The Beaker Creatures Liquid Reactor Super Lab from Learning Resources gets close to hitting that sweet spot. This set is very much in line with Learning Resources’ focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) toys that help children learn, problem-solve, prepare for future success, and have fun at the same time.


The Beaker Creatures Liquid Reactor Super Lab set has everything you need to perform your very own mini science experiment to reveal two of 35 small and cute Beaker Creatures from far away planets, each one with its own unique backstory, classification and characteristics. The set includes the following: 2 Reactor Pods with Beaker Creatures, 1 base, 2 Hydroplungers, 2 beakers, 1 set of tongs, 1 stir rod, 2 classification cards, 2 mini-posters, 1 experiment guide, and 1 full-size poster. The directions for setup are pretty easy to follow and our boys were very excited in helping put it together. The main idea of this set is to use the beakers to house different liquids that can be transferred to the plungers and then combined in the main base cylinder. Watching the liquids mix in the base cylinder is the real payoff: the bubbling reaction taking place when the liquid covered the ‘reactor pods’ was very fascinating for our kids, as was the cute alien creature revealed after the bubbles settled down. One word of note here: the creatures are pretty small relative to the size of the reactor pods, so better to set the right expectations for the little ones so no one is disappointed.


When the two ‘reactor pods’ (we call them creature eggs) that come with the set have been used up (which can happen real fast), there are suggestions for many other ‘experiments’ that can be conducted using household products (e.g. water with food coloring mixed in, baby oil and water, vinegar and baking soda, etc.) The set is pretty sturdy and can be used over and over to creatively combine different liquids into the base cylinder.  You can also buy additional reactor pods to continue collecting the alien creatures. Our kids also want to try this out in the tub and in our water play table outside.


To spark STEM creativity at home for one of our fabulous readers, the good folks at Learning Resources are offering one of the Beaker Creatures Liquid Reactor Super Lab sets as a giveaway:

    It is nice that most people (as I do) have most items in the house – so creating this "experiment" will happen more than once – they will get use to liking science as there are many experiments we can try.

    The reactor pods have to be the most unique part of the kit. The part that I like the best is that you can use regular household ingredients, this to me ensures that my children will be able to use it more often.
