Discover the relationship between crystalline structure and phase changes with Super Cool! Engage in memorable chemistry activities, including making and viewing crystals to discover the importance of physical changes on how we use matter. The kit includes a full-color student worksheet and teacher guide, with detailed, step-by-step instructions for five activities (plus extras!) designed to engage your student on crystalline structure and phase changes. The student experience has inquiry-based activities and assessments designed to enhance your student's understanding of chemistry and how phase changes are important to matter we engage with day-to-day. Both teacher and student will be able to open the box and start within minutes, but the kit will provide over 15 hours of education and entertainment.
In this kit, the student will engage in these fun activities:
- Make crystal spikes.
- Grow your own crystals.
- Treat yourself to a tasty snack that requires phase changes to exist.
- Create your own experiment to test how a change in temperature works.
- Use three fast and fun experiments to learn about the gas laws.
Use this Super Cool lab kit to answer questions such as:
- What are crystalline structures?
- How are phase changes important to my day-to-day life?
- What are the gas laws?
- How are crystalline structures used to benefit society?
