It's an ENORMOUS science kit containing loads of Spangler favorites for a great value. The 30-page instruction manual will guide you and your young scientist through each experiment with easy to follow directions and simple science explanations.
Grow dozens of dazzling crystals and conduct 15 illuminating experiments with this classic science kit. Experiment with four chemically different crystals each with different properties, including potassium alum crystals that form regular octahedrons, rapidly growing sodium sulfate crystals, long needle-shaped sodium acetate crystals, and plaster which is made from gypsum crystals.
Each of these giant test tubes holds a cool science experiment. Learn about super strong bubbles that you can touch, make and mold your own super bouncing ball, write secret messages with disappearing ink and make a batch of slimy, gooey Insta-Worms.
It’s a science lab in a bag. Make up a pile of Insta-Snow, experiment with waterproof sand and explore the science of UV light as you use the sun to make white beads instantly change colors. Grow a test tube dinosaur, learn how to make water disappear and make squishy jelly crystals. Recommended for children 8 and up.

The news anchors at Fox 4 News in Dallas wanted to see if I could find a few ways to make science fun on their Good Day show. Let's see... I could show them pictures of my science project from 3rd grade... or discuss freezing point depression... or make it snow and change their voices. I'll pick door number 3. As [...]
