Five Science Shows in One Box!
Part science, part showmanship, Spectacular Science is the kit both for the child who loves the limelight and the one who hates it. Part of growing up is learning how to speak confidently to a gathering. Many children who wilt at the prospect may not be reflecting their lack of confidence so much as their belief that they have nothing to say that is worth listening to. Spectacular Science is the solution.

Entertain and Teach
The child-satisfying chemistry demonstrations will provide even the most reticent of children a platform to not just entertain siblings and peers, but also teach them. Every experiment in Spectacular Science has been carefully selected and scripted to create performances worth watching.

Instructions, Explanations, Even Cue Cards
Spectacular Science contains the lab equipment, materials, and chemicals your child needs to put on five dazzling science shows. A sixty-four-page, full-color, comic-book-style manual will instruct him on how to conduct each experiment, explain what is happening scientifically, and give him stage directions for executing it smoothly and safely like a professional. Spectacular Science even includes cue cards not only to help him remember his lines but also each experiment's procedure. Spectacular Science is for children ages twelve and older.

The experiments are divided into five shows.

In the elemental show, you can crush a soda can with water and heat, move particles with your magic wand, produce a fabric that doesn't burn, make dazzling colored flames with chemicals, and craft a blazing witch's breath.

In the water show, you will defy gravity with water, make water vanish into thin air, bend a spoon and a stream of water, repel water with your fingertips, and make a fire-resistant balloon.

The carbon dioxide show gives you a stage to make a self-inflating balloon and a self-destructing bottle, and command soap bubbles to rest on an invisible pond.

In the candle show, you will light a candle with water, light a candle remotely, and magically extinguish candles in four ways.

For encores, you can watch mystical glowing black snakes grow from a pile of powder, turn red "fruit punch" into purple "grape juice," make sparkling fireworks from an orange, and turn "milk" into a solid and back into a liquid again.
