No snow? No problem! Use this polymer powder and moulds to create your own indoor snowman. A little bit of science magic.

Become a UV detective with our photochromic paint, which detects ultraviolet rays from the sun! Instead of using your delicate skin as an ultra-violet light (UV) detector, use this special photon detecting paint that changes colour when exposed to UV light!

What does photochromic mean? Well, "photo" comes from the greek word light, and "chromo" comes from the greek word for colour... meaning that it is colour changing when exposed to different light wavelengths!

This little photochromic paint kit is sure to provide hours of fun with photons. Paint different objects and see how they change colour in different light and dark environments, all while learning about photochemical reactions!

Try painting stars or love hearts on your favourite accessories to add an impressive colour-changing dynamic!

Age: 8+ with adult supervision.
