This kit has some of the coolest, most amazing polymers the toy researchers at Steve Spangler Science have ever seen! Learn about superabsorbent polymers and where they might be found in day-to-day life. Take the science of polymers further with this Spangler Science Club exclusive STEM kit which includes two guides specifically designed for the integration of a young scientist working with an adult science helper. The kit comes loaded with 10 labs to be performed, take it further suggestions, and all the science explanations your young scientist will be looking for.
<bold>What Does It Teach?</bold>
The primary theme of this kit is polymers, especially focused on superabsorbent polymers such as Water Gel. The kit works towards understanding the differences between a hydrophobic and hydrophilic polymers. One of the labs includes color mixing technique and another focuses on observations during a week long activity which lends nicely to a science fair project if you choose.
<bold>Science Fair Connections</bold>
The take-it-further challenges featured throughout the kit are great starting points for any science fair project. With the help and guidance from the adult science helper, it will be easy to focus in on any one of the experiments and create a great science fair project.
