Oil + Water Chemistry


What you get

Oil and water may not mix, but kids and chemistry definitely do! Set up your very own fab chemistry lab, and conduct a series of hands-on oil-and-water experiments. Add fizzy tablets to oil and dyed water to make an underwater “volcano,” and discover why gas bubbles float. Harness the properties of oil and water to create colorful, swirly art. Then explore the concept of density while building an adorable oil-and-water-powered ship-in-a-bottle. And more!




From the desk of the product designer:
