Basic Level

(8-12) years old

  When the indicator is fully coloured, there is material specifically developed for that level.

Intermediate Level

(12-15) years old

  When the indicator is half-coloured, the material from another level may be appropriated for this level. Give it a look!

Advanced Level

(15-18) years old

  When the indicator has no colour at all, the Science Case is not recomended for that level.

Super Hero Level
