Airzooka Air Cannon

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. Then have a good giggle after you mess up a person's hair, ruffle their shirt, dress or papers unnoticed from a distance.

The ultimate of ultimate chemistry kits has arrived at Mad About Science! You won't get any bigger or better than the Thames & Kosmos CHEM C3000. The numbers that describe the kit are astounding: 360 individual experiments, over 90 pieces of professional quality lab equipment, 18 separate chemicals, 176-page, full-color instruction manual. We don't know of a more complete kit for the home chemistry lab!

This kit includes all of the components from CHEM C2000, plus dozens of extra tools and chemicals, and 100 additional experiments. It sounds overwhelming but the thoughtfully written instruction manual is suitable for chemists of any experience level, from budding novices to chemistry enthusiasts. Plus, the C3000 takes scientists through varying areas and complexities of chemistry.

You'll start with fun experiments to learn basic chemistry principles. Build a mini fire extinguisher and float a soap-powered boat. Write with invisible ink and test colored markers on the chromatography racetrack. Make dazzling colors in flame tests and produce electricity in a test tube.

You'll use the alcohol burner and perform experiments that require heat. Separate mixtures, add carbon dioxide to water and produce oxygen gas from hydrogen peroxide. From entertaining, to purely educational, with experiments on elemental properties and chemical identification - this kit has it all, and more!

Like a chemistry class, the manual moves through general lessons on topics like the nature of elements, the behavior of atoms and molecules and the proper procedures for scientific experimentation, into more advanced lessons demonstrating complex chemical properties like combustion, and finally into more real-world applications like understanding environmental forces and measuring water quality.

Aspiring chemists will enjoy the personal experience they gain with the vital tools, methods, and chemicals of modern chemistry while performing experiments that are both accessible and serious... If you're looking for a first-rate chemistry set for a high-school age student, the CHEM C3000 is for you!

What You Get
Thames & Kosmos CHEM C3000.

Includes an easy to follow 176-page colour manual including over 387 interesting and fun chemistry experiences.

The CHEM C3000 set is not a toy. Some of the experiments can be tricky and even potentially dangerous, so it's essential to follow the directions carefully. Adult supervision is required.

Shipping Note: This chemistry set is the real deal! It contains regulated chemicals that can not be shipped by air, only via road courier within mainland Australia. This can be expensive, especially to remote and outback areas. In most cases, the freight cost is included in the price of the product and there will be NO more to pay, however in rare cases where the shipping cost is excessive we will contact you to discuss any extra charges that may be applicable.
