This Chemistry C500 Kit from Thames & Kosmos provides an excellent introductory tour of chemistry for kids 10 & up!

Your little chemists will have a blast performing 30 hands-on (and kid-friendly) chemistry experiments, like:

  • making invisible ink,
  • turning yellow liquid to blue by adding citric acid,
  • using litmus solution to test for an acid or base,
  • forming carbon dioxide,
  • and more!

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, and some household items are needed to conduct all of the chemistry experiments inside (such as a 9v battery and lemon juice).

This Chemistry C500 Kit is an excellent replacement for the Chemlab 1100, which is no longer available. For curious learners as young as 6 years old, consider the Thames & Kosmos Ooze Labs Chemistry Kit! And for more advanced learners, consider the Thames & Kosmos Chem C1000, Chem C2000 & Chem C3000 kits.
