For the classroom. Using science experiments to learn about refraction, reflection, pigments. The architecture section is more robust than the art sectiongood Lego and clay experiments about pyramids vs. towers, columns and support, etc. Good for K-8 science and architecture. More photographs would have been nice.

personal note (not a review): several relevant experiments geared towards upper elementary and older
