Explore the Science of Building Polymers by Cross-linking Long Chains of Molecules
The kit comes with the essential materials you’ll need to conduct many experiments, take-it-further activities and challenges for 1 – 4 children per kit
If the goal is to, “Go forth and gooey-glob the world!”, then this kit is a big step forward! It’s all about the chemistry of ooey, gooey polymers that end up looking like long, stringy, stretchy worms. It’s safe, simple chemistry that produces a wide variety of worms that range from completely clear to all colors of the rainbow. The “Take It Further” and “What Do you Think?” sections go well beyond the basic steps and the result is a series of experiences and activities that go to a whole new level of fun. Worm Eggs anyone?
Create an unforgettable learning experience for both you and your child
This STEM Science Kit includes all the materials you need to conduct all 5 experiments, suggestions for take-it-further activities and challenges for 1-4 children per kit. You’ll also receive two activity guides! The young scientist guide has step-by-step instructions for each lab, along with questions, and more challenges. The adult helper gets a guide including all the science behind the labs.
What does it teach?
This kit is about polymers, modern chemistry, and fun. Making these polymer worms requires lab skills and the kids are given ample materials and opportunities to practice several of them. There’s safely handling chemicals, following directions, writing a hypothesis, and recording data and observations among others. Given all that, there’s still plenty of room for innovation and originality.
