- A great introduction to the chemistry behind polymers
- We’ve added a special dye to our best-selling String Slime to make strings that glow brightly under black light.
Special “Glowing Features” Create Atomic Slime!
Experience instant String Slime in a variety of new colorings, better reaction time, and slimier insides!
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!
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! Look what your young scientist(s) integrated into the Atomic String Slime activities.
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 like a cross-linking solution that links the long strands of polymers in the liquid together.
A 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.)
How Does It Work?
When you make Atomic String Slime, you’re actually learning about the science of polymers. The creative scientists at Steve Spangler Science coined the name “String Slime Goo” but the real name of this liquid is sodium alginate.
Explore the Science of Building Polymers by Cross-linking Long Chains of Molecules
The process of making String Slime is faster and easier than the classic slime recipe and it happens the very second the two liquids mix. Truly amazing!
