Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science wrote the following review:
“Children learn about every aspect of energy–its various types (e.g. solar, magnetic…), forms ( e.g. kinetic vs. potential), and uses. In addition, this kit teaches children about the choices we face in the future:

Where will our energy come from?
How can we make the best use of our resources?
How do we protect our environment and health?
