Youngsters can reveal bright spots on bananas, explore the fluorescence of chestnut bark and learn about glowing sea creatures with the ultraviolet lamp. The kit also explores the important scientific concept of electromagnetism. Your child can build a glowing puppet theater and experiment with glow-in-the-dark plastic to stay entertained as he or she conducts the 22 experiments outlined in the 48-page manual.
