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. And, you can even get this exciting, hands-on experiment in a class size kit. 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. The Atomic Worms Classroom Kit includes everything your students need to make their own slippery, slimey worms. 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! You can purchase more Mini Black Lights , or our large black light. Recommended for children ages 6 and up.
You get enough materials to make about 98 meters (320 ft) of Worms!
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.)
