Learn all about chemical reactions with this exciting chemistry kit!

Kids will get to perform 30 fun experiments, like making invisible ink, turning yellow liquid to blue by adding citric acid, using litmus solution to test for an acid or base, and forming carbon dioxide.

With Chem C500, you'll give your kids an excellent hands-on introduction to the world of chemistry. The projects cover foundational topics such as acids & alkalis, liquids & gas, electric current, and chemical compounds.

This set comes with a 32-page illustrated instruction manual as well as chemistry lab equipment, safety goggles, and five chemicals. Adult supervision is required. Some household items are needed, such as a 9-volt battery and lemon juice.

This is a good replacement for the Chemlab 1100, which is no longer available.

Learn about reactions between solids, liquids, and gases. Discover the colorful effects of acids and bases. Perform astonishing "magic" tricks for your friends. Investigate metals and salts in electrochemical experiments with a 9-volt battery (not included). Learn for yourself how chemistry goes far beyond textbooks and laboratories, to explain occurrences that happen around us every day. The 32-page, full-color experiment manual gives simple instructions for setting up and performing each experiment, and then clear explanations of what happened and why. This kit is ideal for children who are interested in chemistry but who are not yet ready for a more advanced chemistry set. It serves as an excellent introduction to other kits in our CHEM line.
