Kids First - Chemistry Set - Age 8+

Kick off a chain reaction of fun-filled experiments with this introductory chemistry set

Junior chemists can safely explore simple chemistry using the tools in this kit and common household substances from the kitchen and bathroom. Learn how to use basic chemistry equipment and conduct experiments to identify different chemicals using reactions, heat, evaporation, and crystallization.

The Equipment

The basics of chemistry are easily explored with the high-quality yet kid-friendly toolsincluded. The kit contains test tubes, measuring cups and spoons, pipettes, a petri dish, magnifying glass, pH test strips, and more so that kids can dive into their scientific discoveries feeling like a real chemist! The manual also includes basic instructions for using the equipment and best practices and safety guidelines for experimentation.

The experiments in Kids First Chemistry Set examine a plethora of basic chemistry concepts. Dive into the fascinating world of crystals by making your own sugar and salt crystals. Learn about color mixing and chromatography as you make a magic flower. Distinguish similar-looking substances from one another by conducting acid tests, water solubility tests, and more--just as a real chemist would!

Completely tailored to the needs of young children, the 48-page, full-color manual leads experimentation with clear step-by-step instructions supplemented by helpful illustrations.
