Awesome Experiment Book To Blow Your Kids Mind!

I remember in the 12th grade, I had a teacher who was really good at teaching physics. He taught us critical thinking skills with hands-on based science experiments. This also meant working as small groups, we bounced ideas and shared knowledge with one another. Sometimes, if the answer wasn’t right, it gave us the chance to think outside the box and be more creative. Today, classrooms are filled with digital technology which has significantly affected the way our children are learning and interacting hands-on learning through technology and physical equipment, such as those provided in Ted’s science experiments are being a new revolution. For your child, the level of engagement in their own learning and their personal investment in learning is what they’ll be able to take back out.  The problem with technology is that the level of information children get doesn’t necessarily allow them to analyse and process the information compared to a more hands-on approach, so it is right to suggest that Interactive learning has distinctive advantages in comparison to digital information and books –  but both ideally go hand-in-hand.

 “As children use their imagination, they develop important psychological and emotional skills that help them better understand the world around them and their relation to it. Problem-solving, creating new ideas and possibilities, which you and I may not have thought of.”

Now, as a teacher, when you get the ‘I’ve got it moment’ from a child, it’s breath-taking. You can almost see their minds go into deep thought with their micro differential ‘gears’ moving inside their heads, their eyes light up and that’s what makes interactive hands-on learning an amazing way of educating your and our children. With Ted’s science books, ‘Ted and the Flashing lights’, for example – your child is actually experiencing, touch, imagination and visualising. The feeling of touch enables them to become better thinkers in both an analogue and digital manipulative. The entire interaction allows your child to imprint their mind to develop a better memory with an equally better understanding. You as a parent or teacher will see just how these books will guide the children through the school curriculum or home allowing them to expand from their prior knowledge or sit in experimental groups and shape their own inquiries around the story itself.  It’s about allowing your child to build a higher level of creativity, become “flexible thinkers” and to think in a totally different perspective. Getting kids to pick up science know-how, right from the primary level, will only lead them to a higher level of education.

“Reading and storytelling promote your child’s brain development alongside a better imagination.”

We all love reading story books. It gives us the chance to escape from our own lives, maybe reflect upon what we have, or learn something new. As a child, kids’ books provided me the chance to escape and gravitate into another world and to become one of the characters. Kids are exactly the same, but more inquisitive and imaginative. One thing quite familiar to me, when I’d take my boy to the local book shop, he’d search for picture books more over chapter books. This questioned me, why?  Maybe, chapter books are written at a higher level with complex plots?  Looking into picture books however, you can see that the illustrations may help them better understand the story, stimulate their imagination and help them figure out what they are actually reading. For a child picture books are easier for them to predict what following plots may occur. Taking these points into account, with “Ted’s Children’s science books” for example, we wanted to provide your kids with a real life story of little Ted and his journey of challenges and failures, making new friends, learning and building his own confidence through love and “reaching out.” Ted’s true story books are written with ‘Ted’ in mind. His true life story, his journey – so your kids can appreciate and further develop a better hands-on approach to practical science alongside a true story of

“Illustrated children’s storybooks really help reluctant children develop a better understanding of the plot and enhance their imagination to the next level.” Now imagine your child or classroom children follow the journey of Ted; a true storybook that doesn’t just allow your child to be fascinated by his adventures, but to also build the experiments alongside his story. It’s like you’re also there!”

Studies (Ref: 1*) have shown that engaging in creative/thought provoking activities engages more functional regions of the brain when compared to brainstorming/ memory recall tasks. This fMRI (functional magnetic resonance image) scan shows areas of increased blood flow, and therefore activity when engaging in practical based learning. If we implement this into our product, ‘Ted and the Flashing Lights’ for example,  by teaching using practical learning tasks which promote imagination and creativity we can improve the efficiency of learning.

Hat’s off to my science teacher! He had amazing skills in bringing science to life, by simply making it fun! We loved Michael Dyer; and it didn’t matter if he’d make a clown out of himself, pushing and pulling doors to explain Newtonian forces, Stephan’s constants, electromagnetic experiments to thermo-kinetics ; he just had this ‘knack’ of making science a lot more interesting. I don’t think there was single person in our physics class who didn’t pass with a higher education without Michael. I clearly understood his ‘style’ and at that time, it was fresh and extremely unique, because he taught hands-on physics with passion, and that transcended into each and every one of us. Very often I’d hear parents say that science, for them when they were young was boring, dull and uninteresting. They’d wait until the year was over, and tossed their books to never think about it again! Their lives panned out into something other than science, and that to me is a great shame. Science is not boring, in fact, it’s fascinating. If we can make science interesting, just like Michael, by introducing fun, then science will be the most popular subject! For me, learning science in an interactive science in an interactive way allowed it to be more fun which ultimately allowed me to learn more. I was having “fun” and learning the subject in a fun way which was the key to making any science subject, more fun to learn – simply learning more. Teds Science Books are written with colourful illustrations and engaging texts, with Michael in mind. His unique style can help your child get started, understand keywords, and really get into hands-on science experiments, making science fun! His books open your kid’s imagination to the scope of the world and allow them to explore. We love Michael and Ted, and I’m pretty sure you love your kids just as much. If this is the case, buy the book, buy the kit – it’s an investment in their future, as well as yours!

    A very nice article about the science behind learning. I can definitely relate to a lot of the points mentioned with my own learning.
    When it comes to imagination, I find that when I think more deeply about a concept, it becomes engrained into my memory for much longer. Also I get bored less easily with the work and therefore study for longer – it’s a win win!
    The use of functional MRI makes it clear why this is the case. More regions of the brain becoming stimulated explains the reasoning behind the enhanced learning and memory.
    Gizmos is onto something here. They are unlocking potential quite literally by activating areas of the brain which often lie dormant in traditional school lessons.
    Great work!

      The article has not only addressed areas referring to the learning environment but it is supported by strong clinical evidence and literature.

      Small group and interactive learning is already adopted more in the latter part of education for older students specialising in a particular field. Given the process has long-term benefits it will have a greater benefit for the young minds and able to sustain the knowledge for longer and a life-time as per the founder of Gizmos Lab’s own experience.

      Not only does Ted’s Science Books improve a child’s language skills, emotions and a child’s relationship, it also improves hand- eye coordination and sensory development that is imperative towards early childhood development.

      Gizmos Labs is changing the methodology of delivering science to another level and more suited for today’s world and 21st Century.

      Hi Eliza,
      Thank you for your feedback! We love them! You are so right in what you’ve said! It’s vital that our kids are getting inspired and learning at the same time. Subconscious learning is the best key for a child’s education and learning pattern. As they ‘play’ they are exploring, learning and constantly being fascinated! We will go on ensuring our children get the best in life! Stay posted!

    I brought this kit and book last week because of the Covid-19. My boys love hands-on experiments and this book has passion, clearly it’s about the author and that made it so special. We have a good selection of science books at home, but this one seemed to stand out. The kids were so much adventurous with the kits. Really affordable, and what’s more – where do you find a science toy that includes batteries? This one does! Great find! Will be ordering the next one..

    I’m very sceptical when it comes to buying something online. I’ve brought toys, slime kits and all sorts for my kids and they’ve turned out something terrible! Thanks to this Covid-19 virus, we’re limited to travel, plus the fact we live far out in the highlands – no local shop for miles! By God’s grace I came across this site. When I read the details and watched the video, I really felt Ted’s science book team knew what they were talking about! I decided to take a leap of faith and purchased two kits. It was loaded with information from the eBooks, and the hands-on science kit was just amazing! It energised my kids! I didn’t realise the story was based on a true story of the founder himself, and one my kids has reading difficulties, and the way in which these books are written! No bullshit, straight to point fun. Well done Ted’s team! You’ve got something here!
