about this item

Scientific Explorer My First Chemistry Kit is a fun and educational make-it-yourself kit that introduces kids to the wonders of chemistry. This beginner’s chemistry kit allows young chemists to perform several amazing safe and fun activities like exploring the invisible world with a high quality microscope, making powders disappear and then reappear, turning liquids into solids, making their own rainbow disk and making things fizz, foam and jiggle. Children will test solutions with PH paper to understand acids and bases, while learning some cool science that explains how all of this magic happens – it’s chemistry! In each of the 14 activities included, your child will act and think like a real chemist by comparing things, asking questions and making observations using their different senses. Includes citric acid, baking soda, gelatin, (6) strips of PH paper, (5) plastic cups, magnifier, measuring spoon, microscope, (2) Petri dishes, pipette, stick and a 15-page activity guide. Recommended for children 4 years of age and older with adult supervision.

My son liked the activity with baking soda and citric acid, but many of the other activities did not hold his attention as much. We had hoped these to be good afternoon activities, but some of them required waiting for 2 hours (and one for up to 2 weeks), which my son wouldn't have the patience or a...  see moreof emjendee's review

I ordered this kit to have some fun when my 5 and 6 year old grandsons come to visit for a week of "Grandma Camp". I have not used the kit yet, but have opened it to be prepared as to how it works and know what it contains. The kit says for ages "5 plus" and I agree that the experiments would be a...  see moreof Susietreks's review

My daughters are 7 and almost 5. The almost 5 year old quickly lost interest. My 7 year old was interested at first but started to get bored...I was hoping to only do one or two experiments at first, but did not realize the first 6 experiments require something used in the previous step so you rea...  see moreof brooke17's review

I decided to get a chemistry set because I had one as a child and I love it. MY 3 year old was not as enthused as I was about it. My 2 year old on the other hand likes it. He currently has to look at his food thoroughly under the microscope before he eats it to see if he sees anything. For a my fir...  see moreof kitkatmom's review
