Berkeley's Lawrence Hall of Science wrote the following review:

Children learn about every aspect of energy and its various types (e.g. solar, magnetic), forms ( e.g. kinetic vs. potential), and uses. In addition, this kit teaches children about the choices we face in the future:

 

  • Where will our energy come from?
  • How can we make the best use of our resources?
  • How do we protect our environment and health?

As with the entirety of the ScienceWiz line, the kits are accompanied by a booklet written specifically for children. The writing is clear, concise and engaging, complimented strongly by clever illustrations.
