Rockets, dinosaurs and flowers that make kids smarter

If it’s slimy, noisy, strange or smelly, kids are going to love it. That’s what Miguel Pina Martins realised 10 years ago when he was searching for a new career. At the age of 21, he felt that kids were not getting what they needed in science toys, so he quit a promising job in finance and started his own company to offer something different.
