These colorful percussion tubes range in length from 30 cm to 61 cm (12" to 24") and provide a full octave of consecutive notes. You can compose a simple tune by yourself, play together with your family, or drum with all of your friends. Experiment with the science of sound.
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 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.
