The Stepping Into Science kit is a set of materials with an instruction book to create twenty-five science projects for early elementary students. The instructions for operating the experiments were clear and easy to follow. Each project described in the manual includes simple scientific explanations as to why the experiment behaves as it does and offers suggestions for further exploration of the theme.

A few of the projects also require simple home ingredients, such as baking soda, vinegar, and sugar cubes, but by and large the kit is self-contained.
