Explore the power of hydrophobia with smooth sand and cool gel that don’t get wet when exposed to water!
The Hydrophobic Substances science kit includes lots of experiments and activities to discover more about different water-repelling materials first hand in a fun and engaging way. Perfect for that young scientist.
This awesome lab kit includes chemicals, containers, instructions and accessories for endless chemistry fun. The fascinating water-repellent sand and gel defy the laws of nature and don’t get wet when exposed to water!
Use the 16-page Learning Guide to discover concepts like hydrophobia, viscosity, polarity and more.
Did you know? hydrophobic materials exist in the natural world and are also used in industrial products, for example bird feathers and some car windscreens have a hydrophobic coating to cause rainwater to roll off them.
