Kids try their hand at mad science using a unique set of mad lab tools including mixing and measuring tools as well as creature molds, glow sticks, fluorescent ink, a black-light activator, and an abundance of potions like polymers and glow-in-the-dark powder to concoct 20 science experiments that glow, ooze and bounce. Create a lava lamp, glowing slime, super glow balls, glow ink and much more. All the while, they’ll be learning about things like fluorescence, phosphorescence, chemiluminescence, bioluminescence, polymers, non-Newtonian fluids, carbon dioxide reactions, crystal formation, and nucleation.
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARDsmall parts not for children under 3 years. This set contains chemicals that may be harmful if misused.
I bought this as a gift for my niece and nephews aged 8 to 13 and it was a hit! I had a blast with it too, but just know ahead of time that quite a few of the projects requre ingredients you aren't likely to have on hand around the house. If you want to give this for Christmas, you may want to break into the book early and see what you need to stock up on. And yes, its messy!
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
