<bold>Magic Sand May Look Like Ordinary Sand�</bold>

<bold>but just try to get it wet!</bold>

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.

<bold>How does it work?</bold>

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.

<bold>What does it teach?</bold>

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.
