Description

An igneous geology experiment that's fun and informative. Combine oil, water, and a tub tint to make a mini "lava lamp" - a replica of the magma blobs that move under the Earth's crust. Includes a sample of quartz monzonite. Packaged in a neat blister pack. The perfect gift for an earth science enthusiast!

My son really enjoyed creating his own lava lamp! The instructions were clear and the results were immediate. Griffin has decided he wants a science-themed birthday party and we'll be purchasing more of these kits as party favors. Excellent service, thank you!

Students can use the Mini Lava Lamp in an investigation of density and chemistry. Have students sketch the various events during construction of the Mini Lava Lamp. Shake up the tube and let students sketch the various motions of the liquids.

Continue the investigation with a simple study of thermodynamics. How do the liquids in the Mini-Lava Lamp react to the properties of heat and cold? What are the relationships between density and heat?

Place the Mini Lava Lamp in a container of warm water. How do the liquids react? Place the Mini Lava Lamp into a container of ice water. Record the findings with pictures, descriptions or photos or even a slow motion video taken with a cell phone.

These investigations give students opportunities to explore thermodynamics--a branch of physics that deals with heat and temperature and their relation to energy and properties of matter.
