The only thing better than mixing up a batch of our ooey, gooey, String Slime is making a batch of glow in the dark “Atomic” String Slime! We’ve added a special dye to our best-selling String Slime to make strings that glow brightly under black light. Just mix the Activator with water, squirt in the String Slime liquid, turn on a black light and wait for the oohs and ahhs to begin. The Atomic String Slime 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 String Slime!
- 1-Liter of Atomic String Slime Solution
- 60 Grams of Activator
- 1 small squirt bottle
- 1 Blue measuring scoop
- 1 Mini Black Light
What Does It Teach?
Atomic String Slime is a great way to introduce students to the chemistry behind polymers. String Slime is a long chain of molecules called a polymer. When the String Slime liquid comes in contact with the Activator, it 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 liquid 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.)
