This introductory chemistry kit from Thames & Kosmos is a great way to get kids started in chemistry with 125 easy experiments! Start with an introduction to the field of chemistry and famous chemists. Set up your lab space and learn how to safely handle the lab equipment and chemicals. Then, you can explore indicators with litmus solution and invisible ink; reveal their different color components of your markers' ink on the chromatography racetrack; and experiment with air pressure, surface tension, and the physical properties of fluids.
Throughout, the 80-page fully illustrated manual teaches kids the concepts behind the experiments, and introduces them to groundbreaking chemists who made the discoveries they're studying. 30 high-quality lab equipment pieces are included; the rest of the materials are items you can easily acquire at home. It's sure to encourage your budding chemist!
