Does anyone have any experience with these?
http://www.academyofscienceforkids.com/

I am searching for reviews on the 'net, but so far I haven't found much... only one glowing review.

They look a little pricey, but it seems worth it considering everything you get with the package.

I was going to consider The Young Scientist Club, but I was reading so many mixed reviews that I am having second thoughts on this one.

TIA!

ETA: I forgot to mention that we currently own REAL science Earth and Space by Pandia Press. I ordered it in the middle of last year, but haven't gotten to use it yet because our local library SUCKS! However, I think I'll be able to buy most of the books this year and I also found another library about 45 minutes away that I'd be more than willing to go to.

I know someone who has bought 4 or 5 of their kits and just LOVE LOVE LOVES them. They sat next to us at a homeschool fair once and they were really nice and funny, too (the owners), if that means anything.

Actually, that's good to know! I wouldn't want to buy a product from someone who isn't nice.
