Phenomena kits, designed by Dr. Vince Mancuso, include materials for a discrepant teacher demonstration that leaves them wondering why. The kit contains a wide variety of reusable materials for 10 student groups to investigate why some boards are knocked down and others are not by testing different variables. Teachers are guided through the inquiry method using detailed teacher and student literature.
