Young chemists will learn to conduct experiments using real lab supplies and common substances found in their own home to reveal their unique - and often surprising - chemical properties. This kit teaches the basics of chemical analysis and lab techniques as students learn to distinguish chemicals from one another. Experiments include dissolving a solution in water, using a pH test to determine acidity level, testing for gas reactions, crystalization of a solution, and carbonization of a heated substance. Twelve chemical ID cards provide information for students to conclude the identity of each chemical. Kit contains safety goggles, litmus paper, two test tubes, and test tube stand. A detailed 12-page manual is also included. Appropriate for ages 8 and up.
