Kick off a chain reaction of exciting experiments with this introductory chemistry set designed specifically for kids.
Conduct experiments to identify different chemicals using reactions, heat, evaporation, and crystallization. Examine the composition of inks and dyes with chromatography experiments, where colors magically separate from one another on a filter paper disk. Explore the properties of water, soaps, and oils.
Experiment with acids and bases using indicators (pH strips and cabbage juice) to identify them. Make fizzy reactions with acids and bases to dissolve shells and extinguish candles. Discover the invisible gas carbon dioxide and its very visible effects.
The full-color, 48-page manual guides inquisitive young chemists and their adult supervisors through safely conducting each of the 27 experiments.
Thames & Kosmos was founded in 2001 by a science museum director and her son, who saw the great need and demand for better science education materials — resources for parents and their children that are more engaging, more effective, more relevant, and more fun. Thames and Kosmos makes great kits and the manuals are so full of great science information. They are truly a step above other science kits!
