Foam Alive™ Science Experiment Kit
You won’t believe it until you feel it. Foam Alive truly comes to life in your hands. Shape it, roll it and let it go. Foam Alive will never dry out.
Many substances are affected by temperature and Foam Alive is no different. When you lower the temperature of substances, the molecules move around more slowly and often move closer together. This physical change to the Foam Alive polymer is only temporary. As it warms up, it will start acting normal again, but even super cold Foam Alive flows like a liquid and can be molded into a solid shape.
Foam Alive feels fluffy because of the air that is trapped inside the foam. Air is less dense than water, which makes the Foam Alive float.
Foam With a Mind of Its Own
Children learn about solids, liquids and gases in their first science classes and when they do, they develop a fixed idea about how all matter should behave. Show them that science can always surprise them with the Foam Alive™ Kit from Steve Spangler Science. Foam Alive™ is colorful foam that doesn’t obey the usual Newtonian laws of viscosity, so it does not behave like a normal liquid or solid. Instead, it has an appealing fluffy feel that can be formed into the solid shape of a ball before melting and flowing away. Playing with Foam Alive is a wonderful way for kids to learn about the adaptability and versatility of polymers. It’s also a great way for them to learn that, when studying science, it’s always important to keep an open mind.
