YOUNG SCIENTISTS CLUB REVEALS 2010 THEMES: SOLAR ENERGY, ANIMAL TRACKS, AND DINOSAURS
Experiment and Play With the Newest Science Kits and Games at Toy Fair Booth 5233
Jamestown, RI (February 14, 2010) – Ever wonder what the mothers of little Albert Einstein [future
Nobel Prize winner] or little Valerie Frizzle [future Magic School Bus teacher with the moniker Ms.
Frizzle] gave to their brainy kids to satisfy their growing curiosity beyond their school lessons? They
would have craved the award-winning collection of science kits created for budding (dare we say)
Einsteins. The Young Scientists Club is delighted to announce its newest releases for 2010 with solar
energy, animal tracking, and dinosaurs as themes. The newest products will be on display for play at the
2010 American International Toy Fair Booth 5233.
The Young Scientists Club continuously wins the top toy industry awards, year after year, for their novel
approach to science education. New for Spring 2010 are science kits to unlock the secrets of animal
tracks, recreate global warming in a bottle, and design a diorama for dinosaurs! These new kits join
dozens of best sellers that teach a wide range of topics and instill a love for science.
Harvard-educated Esther Novis founded The Young Scientists Club to fill a void of good quality science
products for young children that would engage girls as well as boys in an exciting and positive manner.
As a mom herself, she believed children should to be exposed to the exciting fields of science at an early
age with fun and engaging hands-on games, activities, and experiments that are accompanied by ageappropriate information on specific science topics.
Visitors to The Young Scientists Club booth at February’s Toy Fair can meet Ms. Frizzle and be the first

ABOUT THE YOUNG SCIENTISTS CLUB
Esther Novis, a mother of five and a former Harvard-trained biologist, started The Young Scientists
Club as a summer science camp for her then 5-year-old son. Friends from other parts of the country told
Novis they wanted to duplicate her concept and the idea for a science subscription service was born! The
subscription kits are now mailed monthly to thousands of children around the world and the company’s
retail kits are sold in hundreds of specialty stores.
In addition to developing new products for The Young Scientists Club, this wise mom has many years of
experience teaching at Phillips Academy, Andover and has written the science column for Parents
Magazine plus wrote science experiments for the new science curriculum by McGraw-Hill Publishing.
