My kids have become addicted to Gold Rush in Alaska and have studied that our home town of Charlotte, NC came about because of the discovery of gold and creation of a US Mint here. This kit was the perfect introduction to the excavation and identification of "gold". The info guide is well written and was read by my 6, 9 and 12 year old children. They each received the kit and sat around the table to see who could discover gold first. We have several other Dr. Cool products and this one did not disappoint!
