When it comes to balloons, you generally want to keep them away from sharp objects, but not with the Puncture Proof kit! With some scientific knowledge about polymers, you’ll see how a sharpened wooden cooking skewer can pierce (without popping) a fully blown balloon. Seriously, the balloon won’t pop!
The Puncture Proof kit provides a unique hands-on experience with polymers, molecules, and their properties. Young scientists will impress everyone with their ability to master molecular elasticity (a fancy word for molecules stretching) to prevent a balloon from popping.
DON'T FORGET! Like with all of our SICK Science kits, you'll receive a URL link and QR code to access the experiment video, as well as an exclusive Take It Further video featuring Steve Spangler!
