Not bad, and provides a fair amount of scientific explanation understandable by ages 7+ I'd say, but if I'd known that I could have a product almost exactly the same but with more interesting experiments for just £10 more I'd've passed. That's what I found in "John Adams Hot Wires Electronics Kit" – experiments including light/dark-activated switches, radio transmitting/receiving, even logic switches. On the plus side, all the parts of Cambridge Brainbox's kit will connect easily with the John Adams kit – but the latter also has a less fiddly board, which was an element I glossed over in other reviews of Brainbox that I read here before my purchase. It's not necessarily important (you can build the circuits without the board), but if you're trying to keep your circuits neat then it's very useful – so especially in classroom settings, I'd say!
