Alyssa is constantly asking me these days if we can do a challenge or experiment. School seems to have lit a fire under her thirst for knowledge and she wants to know how everything functions and works. Her current goal in life is to be a marine biologist and find a way to save the Great Barrier Reef – the girl has goals and is starting out small with litter picking and beach cleaning. However, I want to feed and nurture this desire of hers to learn more and feel like she can make a difference in the world. So when Trends offered us some of the items from their Science Mad Collection, I knew these would be perfect for my information hungry kid!

Science Mad! 5-in-1 Weather Station
This was really simple to set up. The weather station features,; a 3-cup anemometer to measure wind speed in MP/H or KP/H; an indicator that points to where wind is coming from; an integral compass to record wind direction; a thermometer to measure temperature in both degrees Fahrenheit and Celsius and a pull out rain gauge to measure inches and millimetres of rainfall.
It’s a very well thought out piece of kit, with everything an amateur weather person needs. It’s suitable for ages 6+ and it’s so easy to set up, just slot everything into place and plant it firmly outside, somewhere where it’s not sheltered from the weather.

Science Mad! Night Vision Goggles
They are light-weight and hands-free, and if you’re a child who loves to have adventures or in my case, sit up talking to themselves at night, then these are ideal for that. The blue-tinted lenses and bright LED light beams help to give you night vision. The flip-out scope and 2X magnifying lens can help you get a close up view of things in the dark.
