All Thames & Kosmos tools, components, and custom-made parts are meticulously designed and selected. They are tested with the utmost care. Scientific exploration is a lifelong journey and it is important that the materials stand the test of time.
Rigorous Safety Testing
More than one hundred years of expertise in publishing science experiment kits stand behind every product that bears the Komsos name. They are compliant with Europoean and US safety standards, as well as our own refined proprietary safety guidelines. By working closely with our manufacturing partners and testing labs, we are able to control all stages of production. While the majority of products are made in Germany, all product, regardless of origin, follow the same rigid standards.
Comprehensive Reading Materials
Thames & Kosmos' full-color, age-appropriate manuals are one of the key attributes that has helped establish the company's reputation as a leader in the science category. Calling upon Kosmos' rich history as book publisher, T&K manuals are clearly written, beautifully illustrated, and comprehensive in content. In addition to colorful step-by-step assembly instructions for each building project and experiment, the manuals provide real-world examples and in-depth explanations of the scientific processes at work. The reading materials create a synergy with the kits' high quality materials to not only demonstrate how something works, but why it's relevant to every day life.
Strong Play Value
Most of Thames & Kosmos science kits contain multiple experiments. The kits can be used over multiple sessions, resulting in hours — if not days — of fun learning and discovery. Many of T&K kits have found a strong foothold in school and homeschool communities for their ability to enhance longer-term curricula.
