These test tubes are dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning.
Recommended for children ages 3 and up.
How Are These Test Tubes Created?
Our Large Plastic Test Tubes are also knows as Baby Soda Bottles because they’re made in a bottling plant. At the plant, the tubes are placed into a vacuum mold and heated so they soften. Hot air is then blown into the tube, stretching the warmed plastic to 40 times its original size. When the plastic cools into the shape of the mold, the bottle is ready to fill with a refreshing drink.
What Does It Teach?
Large Plastic Test Tubes will instantly become a staple of your classroom or household, no matter how old your scientist is. The thick plastic material is nearly unbreakable and makes the perfect sealable container for all kinds of materials and hands-on science experiments.
You’ll feel confident whether your kids are mixing solutions for a chemistry experiment or using the test tubes to examine items they gathered from the backyard because you’ll know the equipment is sturdy and safe.
Our large plastic test tubes can be used to teach kids more things than you can imagine. Grow plants, observe critters, collect water samples, explore different densities, hydrate polymer crystals and mix all the colors you can find in a rainbow. The only limit to the possibilities for Large Plastic Test Tubes is imagination.
Are They Indestructible?
For the most part, these test tubes are indestructible. We put some Large Plastic Test Tubes through rigorous testing including dishwashing, dropping and stomping, and they remained unharmed. The Large Plastic Test Tubes did not, however, survive when Drew treated one as a baseball and threw it at a brick wall at 90 miles per hour. The Large Plastic Test Tubes are also not fireproof and will melt under extreme heat.
They Are Leak-Proof
In addition to being some of the sturdiest test tubes ever, Large Plastic Test Tubes are leak-proof. The included caps easily twist on and off, making the test tubes shakable and unbreakable, even with liquids inside. This is just one more thing to make you feel good about your kids using these in the classroom or at home.
