They Never Lose Their Amazing Color!

These multi-colored spheres are like jelly marbles!

I’m sure you’re thinking that after we brought you Jelly Marbles, Water Spikes, Water Cubes, and Water Jelly Crystals, we couldn’t possibly have another superabsorbent polymer up our sleeves… well, think again! Just when you thought polymers couldn’t get any cooler, let us introduce you to Colorful Growing Orbs! These multi-colored spheres are much like Jelly Marbles, but they never lose their amazing color!

For teachers, parents, grandparents & all-around science adults
We haven’t forgotten about the new STEM and STEAM initiatives you’ve been hearing about in our schools, bringing Science, Technology, Engineering, (Art), and Math together to make young scientists into real thinkers! Look what your young scientist integrated into the Colorful Growing Orbs activities.

How does it work?
These tiny orbs teach big lessons in color, light, and the importance that these thirsty pebbles can play in maintaining a healthy environment. Try drying them out to see how quickly evaporation can take over… and then use them again and again.

The Possibilities for Experimentation Are Endless…
Just drop the Colorful Growing Orbs in water to soak. Put them in one of our Baby Soda Bottles and observe how they grow to the shape of the test tube.

These Colored Spheres Are A Lot Like Jelly Marbles, However…
They never lose their amazing color. You can mix them, squish them, bounce them, and count them. but they will never fade!

Instruction Cards Included with 3 Experiments

Make Gallons of Fluffy Snow in Seconds

The original fake snow polymer!

Snow is a seasonal phenomenon, but it can't be relocated inside for study and play, and - in some areas of the country - it won't appear at all. So, when snow (and fun) is on the mind, let the kids devour hours of fun with one of these Steve Spangler Science Insta-Snow Powder Kits – delivering realistic, fluffy snow that can be dried out to reuse countless times. With just the addition of water, the liquid/insta-snow powder mix turns into a solid within seconds-no mixing required. A true wonder and learning asset for a multitude of settings and playtimes.

Insta-Snow isn't just a cool demonstration, educators have found great use in sensory tables for early childhood and chemistry for advanced sciences!

No matter what quantity of Insta-Snow you choose, you'll get all of the materials you need including mixing instructions and the scientific explanation. You're getting a "WOW" factor with a ton of scientific application. Recommended for children ages 4 and up with adult supervision.

What does it teach?
Explore the ever-changing science of polymers as students experiment with Instant Snow. Each Insta-Snow product comes with an activity guide with suggestions for science fair projects and fun ways to explore the science of polymers. Within seconds, the liquid/powder mixture turns into a solid and then erupts into a fluffy, white snow-like material (no mixing required). Watch in amazement as it instantly expands up to 100 times its original volume.

Why Does Snow Feel Cold to the Touch?
Since the snow is almost entirely made up of water, the water is bound to evaporate. The process of evaporation produces a constant cooling effect. That's why Insta-Snow is so much fun to touch!

Can You Reuse It?
The snow will start to dehydrate after a few days due to evaporation. Just spray the top of the snow with water and fluff the snow with your fingers to give it a fresh, fluffy look. You can also let the snow completely dry out to use it again. The dry form of Insta-Snow powder will last forever!

Take it Further!
Try building a snow fort or an igloo by freezing blocks of snow using an ice tray.

  • The original fake snow polymer.
  • Just add water to make gallons of white fluffy snow in seconds!
  • Leave the snow out to dry and reuse it again and again.
  • As seen on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Today Show, Good Morning America, 9News, & CBS News.

    Bundle Item Details

    Magic Sand May Look Like Ordinary Sand… but just try to get it wet!

    Magic Sand begins as normal looking sand, until it’s dyed and coated with a substance that repels water. This coating keeps the sand dry even after it has been dumped into a container of water. Build castles and other structures under the water, then simply pour the water off when you’re finished and the sand is still dry! You can use it for fun science experiments again and again! Colors vary.

    How does it work?
    Ordinary sand is free flowing and cannot form a structure that holds its shape. Because of its water-repellent properties, when Magic Sand is poured into water, it holds its shape and can even be molded into structures under water.

    What does it teach?
    Learn about the properties of water molecules and how hydrophobic products work. Students can experiment with Magic Sand and then ordinary sand and note the differences in water-repellent properties.

    The Possibilities are Endless!
    Steve Spangler’s Magic Sand is a hydrophobic polymer; sand that never gets wet! It can be used to build underwater sandcastles! Also, Magic Sand is a reusable science toy! When finished, simply pour the water off and let the sand dry! You can use it for science experiments again and again!

    Bundle Item Details

    Test items to determine if they are insulators or conductors
    Conductor: If a material or a device allows electrons to move through it freely, it’s a good conductor of electricity. Metals, like copper and steel, and some liquids, are good conductors.

    What does it teach?
    By adding the probes to the ends of Energy Stick®, you have made what electricians call a conductivity tester or a device that determines if something conducts electricity. The Energy Stick is a great toy to explore the science of electricity and circuits. The Energy Stick’s sensing circuit is so sensitive that it can detect even a very small amount of electricity that travels across your skin! It’s completely safe, and it’s a totally cool way to learn about conductors of electricity
    Insulator: Some materials, like rubber, wood, or glass, do not allow electrons to move through them easily. These insulators can be used to allow safe handling of or protection for electrical circuits.

    Try it with friends! Invite everyone to join in the fun by holding hands and forming a large circle to test their conductivity.

    Comes with an activity guide!
    Teaches young scientists about open and closed circuits as well as conductors and insulators.
