Glowing Chemistry

Product Details

Your Junior Chemist will adore exploring the fascinating world of chemical reactions that produce light, called chemiluminescence. They can mix up a magical blue light in a test tube using the glowing chemical luminol and other substances. With some cool chemical reactions, even coins and radishes begin to glow. Your mixologist 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. They can learn about the electromagnetic spectrum, including visible and invisible light, as well as, experiment with glow-in-the-dark plastic. They will love building a fun glowing puppet theatre to play around with glowing pigments and discover real-world applications for glowing chemistry.

A 48-page, full-color manual guides your Scientific Explorer through 22 experiments in light chemistry and provides scientific explanations and examples.
