Guidecraft Science Module Review & Giveaway!

With school starting back up in less than a month, it's time to get ready! Guidecraft is a great company to help you with some of your back-to-school needs.

"Dear Friends,
It's our 46th birthday and we have so much to celebrate! 
My father started Guidecraft in 1964 in a small woodshop, producing 10 items. I purchased the company in 1995 and have continued to develop the line, which now includes over 580 educational toys and furnishings. Our size has changed, but our mission remains the same; stay true to the tradition of smart, beautifully crafted wood products, which allow children's minds and imaginations room to truly wonder and grow. 
As we turn 46, we see that our best contributions lie in this commitment to continue doing what we do best, while always giving our loyal customers what they have come to expect; expert quality, excellent service and an ever growing collection of creativity inspiring products for children. Our playful furniture is a wonderful new extension of our line and we are delighted to present it to you. 
As I watch the next generation of Fein's play with Guidecraft products I eagerly invite you and the children in our lives to join in the fun, learning and excitement. 
Thank you for your interest and enthusiasm; we are working hard to earn your new and continued loyalty. 
Jason L. Fein,

Presdient"


In the box and ready to assemble!


The units stack on top of each other.
Guidecraft sent me the Modular Science Center for review.  This is an amazing piece to help your children with science projects! The modular is a self-contained unit that provides plenty of space for study. The system includes an acrylic magnifier, plant and grow unit, touch and see unit with clear acrylic panel and mystery opening, habitat unit with sliding acrylic panels, and a mobile base with casters. The units stack on top of each other (with built-in handles). Made of birch ply and hard maple, this system will last a long time! I was very impressed as I put this together...very easy, and comes with the tool needed for assembly. (You do need a screwdriver to attach the wheels).  There are also assembly instructions online if needed.
The children are really looking forward to using this for their science projects when school starts back in! Presently this is sitting in our living room empty, but in just a few weeks it will be filled with all sorts of plants, bugs and more, and getting a lot of use!  This is a great way to get your children excited about extra science activities. 
I love how sturdy this is, and the mobility is a great plus. It can be moved around as needed, and we don't have to lift and carry everything. The handles also offer the option of taking one of the units to school (for show-and-tell) or moving somewhere else if needed.


Testing the acrylic magnifier!

The mystery opening unit!



Guidecraft has other great items to help with school/school projects, too! Check out their selection of Classroom Furniture for more details.

  19. The modular science center would be a fantastic addition to our home! We absolutely love studying science. It would be just great to have a place for our son to put all of his experiments. I visited the sponsor website and am really impressed with the quality furniture they have. Another product that I like is the theatre. What a great way to nurture creativity.
