The Atomic Chemistry Set - An Overview

If you've ever searched for chemistry sets online, it probably didn't take long to realize that the modern chemistry set is not what it once was. Almost all chemistry sets available today are either watered-down, incomplete, or simply not very exciting. We want to change that. The Atomic Chemistry Set is thoroughly designed to be the best chemistry set available. It will include the chemicals, equipment, and procedures to carry out the most interesting chemical reactions that science has to offer. 

More than a year ago, we launched the Incredible Chemistry Set here on Kickstarter. Creating the Incredible Chemistry Set campaign was a rewarding journey full of learning curves and discoveries. That project provided us with the necessary feedback and know-how to create the best chemistry set possible. We're making several additions and changes to our original set:

  • Updated Experiments Book (2nd Edition) 
  • 20+ New reactions & experiments  
  • Revised chemicals   
  • Additional apparatus  
  • Improved wooden storage box
  • Footage of chemical reactions and procedures
We need your help. Bringing this project together will be a multifaceted endeavor. Writing a new Experiments Book is going to take time. Researching reactions, verifying procedures, capturing images of the experiments, and compiling the results will only be possible with your support. Also, the minimum order quantity for the books, chemicals, and lab apparatus will require a large backer community. With your support, we'll be able to accomplish all of this and more. Thank you so much for your time! 

The Chemical Reactions

The Atomic Chemistry Set will include the most interesting chemical reactions and science experiments. A partial list of experiments is outlined below:

  • Oscillating Clock Reaction  
  • Sodium Silicate Chemical Garden  
  • Iodine Clock Reaction  
  • Chemiluminescence  
  • Tin Crystals  
  • Ammonium Dichromate Volcano  
  • Sodium Acetate Crystallization  
  • Traffic Light Reaction  
  • Color Flame Test  
  • Potassium Permanganate + Glycerol  
  • Alkali Metals + Water
  • Elephant Toothpaste  
  • Red Cabbage pH Indicator  
  • Silver Mirror  
  • Sodium Hydroxide Titration  
  • Fehling's Test  
  • Blue Bottle Experiment  
  • Silver Nitrate + Copper  
  • Double Replacement Reactions 
  • Invisible Inks  
  • Metal Plating Reactions  
  • Redox Reactions  
  • Electro-chemical Reactions

Other science experiments include the following:  

  • Construct a Magnet Motor  
  • Grow Piezoelectric Crystals  
  • Extract DNA  
  • Ferro-fluid  
  • Create various Batteries

The Experiments Book

At the heart of the Atomic Chemistry Set is our very own Experiments Book. This procedure book is full of super fascinating chemical reactions and science experiments. With your support, we will be able to include at least 20 new chemical reactions and experiments along with all of the content from the first edition. The updated Experiments Book will thus have approximately 56 experiments. Pictures, procedures, and explanations will also be updated and revised. Safety notes and disposal methods will be included in the book. 

*The updated Experiments Book (2nd Edition) will be included in every reward level.

The Lab Equipment

Every piece of lab equipment is purposefully selected to be included in the set. For instance, a gram scale with 0.01g precision is needed for several experiments. All glassware will be individually packaged within the set. 

*Not pictured: 10ml Measuring Cylinder, Alligator Clips, Copper Wire, 60mm Petri Dish, 50ml Beaker

Included Chemicals

The list below shows the chemicals that will be included with the set. These chemicals are specifically chosen in order to carry out the experiments in our book. Most reactions can be carried out at least 3-4 times. This is a preliminary list and might change as new experiments are added to the book. Also, the specified masses are approximations and will vary from set to set. 

 

Final Notes

The Atomic Chemistry Set is inherently dangerous and is not a product for children. As such, the minimum age to purchase the set is 18. 

The chemistry sets will be shipped with the accompanying Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) and in compliance with CFR Title 49.  

Special Thanks:

Risks and challenges

Safety, manufacturing, and shipping are all potential challenges. Having already brought a chemistry set project to fruition, we are well aware of the difficulties involved and feel confident in our ability to overcome obstacles.
