Chem C1000 Chemistry Set from Thames and Kosmos is a great way to prepare for a lifetime of fascination with this essential science through 125 diverse experiments. Starting with an introduction to the field of chemistry and famous chemists you then set up your laboratory workspace and learn how to safely handle the lab equipment and chemicals. This is an important first step to ensure the exploration of the wonders of the chemical world is undertaken safely.
This set is a worthy winner of a Parent’s Choice award and can give you confidence that the young scientist will be stimulated to explore and learn.
Learn about indicators with litmus solution and write a secret message in invisible ink. Test the inks from your coloured markers on the chromatography racetrack to reveal their different colour components. Experiment with air pressure, surface tension, and the physical properties of fluids. Experiment with two well-known metals, iron and copper. Investigate carbon dioxide. Dissolve metals with electrochemical reactions.
Explore water and its elements, saturated and unsaturated solutions, and crystals. Split water into hydrogen and oxygen with electrolysis, and form oxygen from hydrogen peroxide. Experiment with soaps, detergents, and emulsions of water and oil. Investigate chemistry in the kitchen by experimenting with sugar, honey, eggs and proteins, fatty acids, and calcium. Begin to build a strong foundation in chemistry with exposure to a broad range of chemical phenomena and hands-on laboratory experiences. This kit provides clear instructions for preparing and performing the experiments, offers safety advice, offers explanations for the observed occurrences, and asks and answers questions about the results. Thorough safety precautions and instructions ensure safe experimentation. Professional quality equipment helps you make the most of your chemistry experiments. 80-page, full-colour experiment manual.
