A little more about Colorful Growing Orbs
They Never Lose Their Amazing Color! These multi-colored spheres are like jelly marbles!
I’m sure you’re thinking that after we brought you Jelly Marbles, Water Spikes, Water Cubes, and Water Jelly Crystals, we couldn’t possibly have another superabsorbent polymer up our sleeves… well, think again! Just when you thought polymers couldn’t get any cooler, let us introduce you to Colorful Growing Orbs! These multi-colored spheres are much like Jelly Marbles, but they never lose their amazing color!
More about Insta-Snow®
Make gallons of fluffy snow in seconds: The Original Fake Snow Polymer
Snow is a seasonal phenomenon; it can’t, however, be relocated inside for study and/or play. In some areas of the country, it doesn’t occur at all. So, when snow (and fun) is on the mind, let your kids or students experience hours of fun with one of these Steve Spangler Science Insta-Snow Powder Kits, delivering realistic and fluffy snow that can be dried out to reuse countless times. Just add water! Within seconds, the liquid/powder mixture turns into a solid and then erupts into a fluffy, white snow-like material (no mixing required). Watch in amazement as it instantly expands up to 100 times its original volume. Our Instant Snow Powder Kit is a true wonder and a super-cool learning aid for a multitude of settings and playtimes.
More about Magic Sand
Magic Sand may look like ordinary s=and… but just try to get it wet!
Magic Sand begins as normal looking sand, until it’s dyed and coated with a substance that repels water. This coating keeps the sand dry even after it has been dumped into a container of water. Build castles and other structures under the water, then simply pour the water off when you’re finished and the sand is still dry! You can use it for fun science experiments again and again!
More about Water Gel™
Make Water Disappear Like a Magician! Amaze your friends while learning about hydrogels.
As seen on the Ellen DeGeneres show, and also known as slush powder, Water Gel turns from a powder to a gel in just seconds. Sodium polyacrylate absorbs from 500-800 times its weight in water and is actually the secret ingredient that’s used to absorb “liquid” in baby diapers! An Activity Guide with lots of fun, hands-on polymer science tricks to play on your friends is also included.
More about Jelly Marbles™
You won’t believe your eyes! These Jelly Marbles become invisible when submerged in water but grow almost 7 times their size!
Just add water and discover the magic! Place these tiny, solid spheres in water, and in just a little while you will have your own Jelly Marbles that absorbed over 150 times their weight in water. These superabsorbent water marbles are the newest craze around the Spangler Science offices! What starts out as a 3mm pebble, quickly becomes an approximately 20mm ball of jelly! Similar to our Water Jelly Crystals, these water beads absorb a lot of water, plus they maintain their spherical shape when they are done growing. Not only are these superabsorbent marbles fun, they teach a valuable lesson about the power of polymers.
For Teachers, Parents, Grandparents, and All-Around Science Adults!
We haven’t forgotten about the new STEM and STEAM initiatives you’ve been hearing about in our schools, bringing Science, Technology, Engineering, (Art), and Math together to make young scientists real thinkers!
Make a STEM Connection!
Let’s work together to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers. At Steve Spangler Science, STEM is not just an acronym or a checklist of required subjects (science, technology, engineering, and math). Our STEM products encourage young scientists to create new and exciting experiences that foster the skills of collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity.
