Description

Fourteen Super! Wow! Neat!® individually packaged chemistry projects perfect for project work, after school programs, and home schooling. Each kit includes several activities and experiments, enough materials for two or three trials, and a booklet with instructions and concepts. Ages 8+ with adult supervision.

  • Polarity of Water - Make a stream of water bend. See how many drops of water can fit on the surface of a penny.
  • PVA Slime Kit - Make a strange state of matter that will flow, bounce break, and re-form, and learn about the chemistry behind it.
  • Quantum Leap - Add the glow powder to glue or paint and make them glow-in-the-dark. Learn how to make a glowing glue ball and the chemistry behind phosphorescence, a real quantum leap.
  • Magic Color Crystals - Make foaming color changing drinks. Learn about acid-base indicators and pH.
  • Crystal Gel - Make crystal gel swell hundreds of times its size. See it appear to disappear. Learn about refraction, polymers, gels, and osmosis.
  • Super Water Absorber - Learn how to do the magic super water slurper trick. Experiment with polymers, gels, and osmosis.
  • Disappearing Ink - It disappears and reappears. Learn about acid-base chemistry and pH.
  • Jelly Things - Make a tasty polymer pudding and juicy orange jelly things. Learn about polymers and gels.
  • Thermochromic Things - See who is hot and who is cool with thermochromic materials.
  • Photochromic Paint - Have fun with photons while experimenting with photochemical reactions.
  • Solar Beads - Make them change colors with sunlight. Make a UV detector. Have fun with photons! And learn about photochemical reactions.
  • Cool Chem-Light - Learn the secrets behind flashing fireflies and make light from a chemical reaction.
  • Magic Sand - Hydrophobic Coated Sand - Make strange underwater structures. Pour the water off and the sand is 'magically dry'. And learn the chemistry behind the magic.
  • The Spectator - Turn white light into spectacular rays of bright colors. Use them to analyze colors and light.

I love the product! However, I was disappointed when I tried to order 25 kits and only 9 were available. I then ordered class sets instead. These are also great. If the sets are a product you show online and in your magazine I would think you would have more in stock.

Owner Response: Thank you so much for your review. As is true with every product we carry, based on sales, we have a reorder point and a restocking point. Unfortunately, on the date you ordered, the Chem Bits were just about at their reorder point. The good news is that we get this product in very quickly if we have an order that exceeds our quantity. I'm sorry we weren't able to fill your order completely when you needed them.

NGSS

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

Elementary Middle School High School

2-PS1-1
2-PS1-2

Students can use the various sets this kit to investigate and analyze data obtained from testing different materials to determine which materials have the properties that are best suited for an intended purpose.

2-ESS1-1

Students can use the various sets this kit to investigate and make observations to construct an evidence-based account that Earth events can occur quickly or slowly.

4-ESS2-1

Students can use the various sets in this kit in an investigation to make observations and/or measurements to provide evidence of the effects of weathering or the rate of erosion by water, ice, wind, or vegetation.

2-PS1-4
5-PS1-1

Students can use the various sets in this kit for investigations to develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.

5-PS1-3

Students can use the various sets this kit to make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties.

MS-PS1-2

Students can use the various sets in this kit to analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.

MS-ESS2-1

Students can use the various sets in this kit in an investigation to develop a model to describe the cycling of Earth's materials and the flow of energy that drives this process.

HS-PS1-5

Students can use the various sets in this kit to investigate and apply scientific principles with evidence to provide an explanation about the effects of changing the temperature or concentration of particles.

HS-ESS2-1

Students can use the various sets in this kit in an investigation to develop a model to illustrate how Earth's internal and surface processes operate at different spatial and temporal scales to form continental and ocean-floor features.

Suggested Science Idea(s)

DCI/MS-PS1.A

Each pure substance has characteristic physical and chemical properties that can be used to identify it.

2-PS1-1
2-PS1-2
2-PS1-4
5-PS1-1
5-PS1-3
MS-PS1-2
HS-PS1-5

Matter can be described and classified by its observable properties. The various kits offer students an opportunity to see crystal formation and observe how the chemical composition affects the shape and size of those crystals.

2-ESS1-1
MS-ESS2-1
HS-ESS2-1

Students can use the various sets in this kit to observe the crystallization process in a short amount of time, modeling what can takes the Earth millions of years.

4-ESS2-1

Students can use the various sets in this kit to build crystals and then use a variety of methods to witness erosion of the crystal formations.
