If your student has an increasing interest in chemistry and is always hoping for additional experiments, delight him or her with the Thames & Kosmos Chem C3000 kit. With more than 300 experiments, the ultimate chemistry set covers a broad range of chemistry topics, making it ideal for older kids doing middle or high school level chemistry; all of the elements inside provide excellent preparation for even higher level chemistry courses.
This Chem C3000 kit includes all of the lab equipment and supplies from the Thames & Kosmos Chem C2000, plus dozens of additional tools and chemicals, and 100 additional experiments, for a total of more than 333 experiments.
With this engaging and advanced chemistry set, curious learners will:
- conduct water electrolysis
- make potassium permanganate lose its color
- test for starches, create precipitates
- do flame color tests
- make chromatograms of leaves and chemicals
- generate electricity from a test tube
- set off time-delay and redox reactions
- break down sawdust into glucose
- and even depolymerize a yogurt container!
Because the chemistry lab projects and scientific explanations in this kit are quite thorough, this Chem C3000 kit can even be used as its own chemistry course!
The hands-on experiments and 192-page, full-color experiment manual demonstrate and explain advanced topics such as chemical equations, atomic structures & atomic bonds, electrochemistry, and the periodic table; the included manual is written at a more advanced level than the other chem kit manuals from Thames and Kosmos (i.e. Chem C500, Chem C1000 & Chem C2000).
Adult supervision is required when conducting the experiments in this kit, and all you need to provide are some extra materials throughout.
