Thames & Kosmos Glowing Chemistry Kit

With the Thames & Kosmos Glowing Chemistry Kit, your child can reveal the invisible world using chemical reactions. Mix luminol and other substances in a test tube to create a glowing blue light that can make radishes, coins and a variety of other substances glow in the dark. As your little scientist learns about chemical reactions that produce light, called chemiluminescence, he or she will be immersed in the luminous world. 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.
