Two clear liquids are mixed together and the audience is told to watch closely… “Don’t take your eyes off the liquid or you’ll miss it!” Then, in a flash, the clear water changes to ink (or so they think!). Think Ink! illustrates the amazing chemistry behind the classic clock reaction where molecules meet up and change over time to create this startling reaction. Unlike the classic iodine clock reaction from your high school chemistry class, our new Think Ink! formula uses a kitchen chemistry approach to achieve even better results. And yes… this is the same reaction that Steve Spangler shares in his live performances and recently featured on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
This kit includes enough materials to do the Think Ink demonstration 30 times!
What Does It Teach?
The Think Ink! kit helps teach the following chemical concepts…
- Rate of reaction as a function of temperature
- Rate of reaction as a function of reactant concentration
