The only thing better than mixing up a batch of our ooey, gooey, Insta-Worms is making a batch of glow in the dark “Atomic” Insta-Worms! We’ve added a special dye to our best-selling Worm Goo to make slimey worms that glow brightly under black light. Just mix the Worm Activator with water, squirt in the Worm Goo, turn on a black light and wait for the oohs and ahhs to begin. The Atomic Worm Goo looks like liquid light when it touches the Activator solution. Kids and adults, alike, will be mesmerized by this delightfully gooey glow in the dark science adventure that is perfect for Halloween, but great anytime of year! Recommended for children ages 6 and up.You can purchase more Mini Black Lights on our site, or our large black light.
You get enough materials to make about 50 meters (160 ft) of Worms!
- 1-Liter of Atomic Worm Goo Solution
- 60 Grams of Worm Activator
- 1 small squirt bottle
- 1 Blue measuring scoop
- 1 Mini Black Light
What Does It Teach?
Atomic Insta-Worms is a great way to introduce students to the chemistry behind polymers. Worm Goo is a long chain of molecules called a polymer. When the Worm Goo comes in contact with the Activator, the goo immediately changes from a liquid to a solid! That’s because the Activator acts a cross-linking solution that links the long strands of polymers in the goo together. All of these science secrets are made even better with the addition of our special coloring agent that fluoresces under black light. When the energy from the black light “excites” the fluorescent dye, you end up with a brightly glowing, very exciting, ooey, gooey experiment! (For the full glowing effect, you will need to purchase a large black light.)
