Airzooka - Air Cannon
The amazing Airzooka will blow you away! Blast a harmless vortex of air up to 6 meters towards any object or person.

Explore the fascinating world of chemical reactions that produce light, also known as chemiluminescence. Mix up a magical blue light in a test tube using the glowing chemical luminol. With some cool chemical reactions, even coins and radishes begin to glow.

You will discover how the natural world is full of luminous mysteries: bright spots on bananas, fluorescent chestnut bark, and glowing creatures in the sea. Experiment with the special ultraviolet lamp to reveal things that would otherwise be invisible. Learn about the electromagnetic spectrum, including visible and invisible light. Experiment with glow-in-the-dark plastic. Build a fun glowing puppet theatre to play around with glowing pigments and discover real-world applications for glowing chemistry.

A 48-page, full-colour manual guides you through 22 experiments in light chemistry and provides scientific explanations and examples.
