CHEM C1000 - Experiment Manual Sample Pages (PDF)

Bigger and better than ever, Chem C1000 will lead your child through 75 diverse experiments as it lays the groundwork for understanding chemistry. The 40-page, full-color Experiment Manual introduces young scientists to a broad range of chemical phenomena and hands-on laboratory experience.

It uses a "magic tricks" theme as an enticement to master some of the experiments, and I appreciate the declaration that all magic is merely deception and that scientists should not allow themselves to be deceived. Children are even encouraged to share with their audiences why the tricks work. Not all the experiments have wow-appeal, but this is a systematic program that does more than excite; it educates.

Recommended for children 10 and older, but I strongly recommend adult supervision as the kit contains some potentially scary chemicals.

Chem C1000's 40-page, full-color Experiment Manual guides aspiring young chemists, chemical engineers, lab technicians and researchers through 75 experiments.
