Thames & Kosmos Kids First Chemistry Set (Level 3)
Junior chemists can safely explore simple chemistry using the tools in this kit and common household substances from the kitchen and bathroom. Learn how to use basic chemistry equipment such as filters, test tubes, pipettes, and measuring spoons, and beakers. Make your own test tube racks out of plaster and learn about the chemical reaction that forms them.
Conduct experiments to identify different chemicals using reactions, heat, evaporation, and crystallization. Examine the composition of inks and dyes with chromatography experiments, where colours 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.
All science experiments are guided by a step by step 48 page manual which explains the theories behind the experiments too.
