About

The Chemistry Set includes the glassware, chemicals, and lab apparatus necessary to perform the most interesting and exciting chemical reactions. We have spent months researching the most fascinating reactions to include in the set. All of this research has been compiled in our Experiments Book. This book includes procedures for 75 experiments. The set, along with the book, will enable you to carry out these experiments. Also included in the set are selected physics experiments (magnetism & electricity). 

Many chemistry sets fail to include exciting reactions. Our Experiments Book is packed with the best experiments that science has to offer. Below is a list of a few chemical experiments that will be included. The set includes the chemicals needed to perform these experiments (and many more):

  • Iodine Clock Reaction
  • Chemiluminescence 
  • Traffic Light Reaction
  • Blue Bottle Experiment
  • Chemical Garden
  • Color Flame Test
  • Endothermic Reaction
  • Exothermic Reaction
  • Copper Sulfate Crystals
  • Potassium Permanganate and Glycerin 
  • Acid & Metal Reaction
  • Calcium & Water
  • Hydrogen Peroxide Decomposition
  • Sodium Acetate Crystallization
  • Red Cabbage pH Indicator
  • Sodium Hydroxide Titration

The Chemistry Set is a great gift for the scientific minded and is applicable to all ages (Some of the reactions included in the set are inherently dangerous. Anyone under 18 needs adult supervision). 

The set includes enough material to perform the reactions at least twice. Several reactions can be performed many times. Also, a number of the experiments require chemicals that cannot be shipped (such as dry ice).

Some of the other science experiments include:

  • Ferrofluid & Magnets
  • Magnet Motor
  • Extracting DNA from Strawberries
  • Electromagnetism 
  • Buoyancy Experiments

Chemicals Included: Ammonia, Ammonium Chloride, Ammonium Oxalate, Ammonium Persulfate, Barium Carbonate, Barium Chloride, Barium Nitrate, Boric Acid, Calcium Metal, Cobalt Chloride, Calcium Chloride, Calcium Sulfate, Charcoal, Copper(II) Sulfate, Calcium Gluconate, Ferrofluid, Glucose, Glycerin, Hydrogen Peroxide, Indigo Carmine, Iron Powder, Lithium Chloride, Magnesium, Manganese Dioxide, Methylene Blue, Nitrocellulose, Potassium Persulfate, Potassium Iodide, Potassium Nitrate, Potassium Chloride, Potassium Permanganate, Potassium Sulfate, Potassium Perchlorate, Sulfur, Sodium Silicate, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Acetate, Sodium Thiosulfate, Sodium Carbonate, Starch Liquid, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Sulfate, Sodium Polyacrylate, Strontium Chloride, Zinc Sulfate

Risks and challenges

One of the challenges with this project is making the wooden boxes by hand. The boxes must be custom-made because no other wooden box satisfies the criteria of the set. Although the process can be time consuming, we're confident that we can produce these efficiently.
