Goofy Glowing Gel Class Kit
Make a strange and goofy gel that is half-way between Gak and Silly Putty, and it glows too!
Do the Eco-Foam Fizzle, and learn about the chemistry behind polymers, cross-linking gels, phosphorescence and the quantum leap.
This great-value kit contains all supplies needed for all the students in your class to make a glowing slime a couple of times over. This translates to 5 stations of 2 to 3 students for 2 to 3 classes, or enough for approximately 45 to 60 students in total.
Recipes for making interesting polymers at home are also included. You'll love the 'glow powder' that can be added to any mixture - not just the goofy gel - to make it glow.
Teachers say: "it is engaging, saves time and is grade level appropriate".
Age: 10+ with adult supervision. This kit contains chemicals that can be harmful if misused.
What You Get
Goofy Glowing Gel Classroom Kit. Contains borax solution (5 oz), guar gum (25 g), phosphorescent zinc sulfide (25 g), white glue, baggies, stirrers, spoon, cups, eco-foam, MSDS and instructions in a plastic shoe-box sized container. Enough supplies for 5 stations of 2 to 3 students for 2 to 3 classes, or enough for approximately 45 to 60 students in total.
How Does it Work?
Borax is known in the world of chemistry as sodium tetraborate. Combine it with white glue in this goofy class kit to form a polymer (long-chained molecule with special properties - stretchy, strong, thirsty). Is it a solid, or is it a liquid? Use the phosphorescent zinc sulfide to give the goofy gel a mysterious glow, or 'quantum' impact.
Learn the States of Matter well with Goofy Glowing Gel! We love polymers and colloids that test the boundaries!
