DESCRIPTION

Once you have beakers, flasks, test tubes, and other supplies, it's time to do the fun stuff! Get started with the 30 beginner chemistry experiments in this set, written in easy-to-follow steps.

Perfect for anyone just starting out with chemistry, this set offers a beginner but in-depth and hands-on chemistry experience that promotes lifelong curiosity. This set is designed as a companion for our Chemistry Equipment Set and contains chemicals, equipment, instructions, and explanations for chemistry experiments.

This introduction to chemistry will engage middle school kids in interesting experiments with real chemicals and genuine lab safety gear. Lab supplies, like graduated cylinders, test tubes, and alcohol lamp are not included; rather, this is an experiment kit (with chemicals and instructions) meant to be used with your existing labware.

What do you get?

This bestselling, top-rated chemistry set provides:

  • 6 lab-grade chemicals
  • 3 household chemicals
  • Personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • 16-page full-color experiment manual
  • 27 step-by-step experiments
  • 3 bonus experiments
  • 10 chemistry topics to explore  

What experiments can you do?

Check out our sample lab manual and the following experiments, which is only a glimpse at what's possible with this kit:

  • Cloud in a Beaker, a demonstration of states of matter
  • Color-change Chemistry, an introduction to acids and bases
  • Super Cool Slime, an example of polymers
  • Sample lab manual

Intended for grade 6 & up, this beginner chemistry set requires adult supervision. Younger children can join in the fun by watching a parent complete the activities and explain the results. You provide common household items, like sugar, salt, and dish soap.

What chemistry principles are covered?

Learn foundational topics: states of matter; solubility & solvents; physical properties; acids & bases; polymerization; precipitation; physical & chemical reactions, and electrochemistry. Explore density, solubility, chromatography, endothermic and exothermic reactions, and more. It's a complete introduction to chemistry!

What else do you need?

To perform every experiment as written in the Intro to Chemistry manual, you’ll need the following chemistry labware (sold in one pack in our Chemistry Equipment Set). Some substitutions may be possible.

  • 250 ml & 600 ml glass beaker
  • 100 ml graduated cylinder
  • Glass stir rod
  • 250 ml flask
  • 4 test tubes
