A convenient way to let your students interact with luminous chemicals! Each 1.5 inch light stick can glow for up to six hours. Each box of 50 light sticks comes in an assortment of colors. Great for fundraisers or your school store!
Try This: Use the light sticks to demonstrate rate of reaction by placing one glowing stick in hot water, and one stick in cold water. Which stick glows brighter? Which stick will last longer? Use with our Spectroscopes.
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 |
Students can plan and conduct an investigation with the Light Sticks to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties. 4-PS4-2
Students can plan and conduct an investigation with the Light Sticks to develop a model to describe that light reflecting from objects and entering the eye allows objects to be seen. 5-PS1-4
Students can use the Light Sticks to conduct an investigation to determine whether the mixing of two or more substances results in new substances.
| || MS-PS4-2 |
Students can use the Light Sticks to develop and use a model to describe how waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials.
| || HS-PS1-7 |
Students can use the Light Sticks to construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms, trends in the Periodic Table and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties.
