Enroll in CHEM C1000 and prepare for a lifetime of fascination with this essential science through 125 diverse experiments. Start with an introduction to the field of chemistry and famous chemists. Set up your lab space and learn how to safely handle the lab equipment and chemicals.

Learn about indicators with litmus solution and write a secret message in invisible ink. Test the inks from your colored markers on the chromatography racetrack to reveal their different color components. Experiment with air pressure, surface tension, and the physical properties of fluids.

Experiment with two well-known metals, iron and copper. Investigate carbon dioxide. Dissolve metals with electrochemical reactions. Explore water and its elements, saturated and unsaturated solutions, and crystals. Split water into hydrogen and oxygen with electrolysis, and form oxygen from hydrogen peroxide.

Experiment with soaps, detergents, and emulsions of water and oil. Investigate chemistry in the kitchen by experimenting with sugar, honey, starch, eggs and proteins, fatty acids, and calcium.

Begin to build a strong foundation in chemistry with exposure to a broad range of chemical phenomena and hands-on laboratory experiences. This kit provides clear instructions for preparing and performing the experiments, offers safety advice, offers explanations for the observed occurrences, and asks and answers questions about the results.

Thorough safety precautions and instructions ensure safe experimentation. Professional quality equipment helps you make the most of your chemistry experiments. The 80-page, full-color experiment manual guides aspiring young chemists through each of the 125 experiments. Ages 10 and up.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating  Great starter set
Ray from New Jersey
I gave this to my grandson for his birthday, he is 7. The best part of the kit is the hardware that comes with it - he loves the glass test tubes, measuring spoon, etc. It comes with 7 chemicals, and yes, you have to get other materials on your own, but they are mostly household items like vinegar, cotton balls, sparkling water. I opened the package and read in the manual what else I needed prior to giving the set to him so we were ready to go right away. I have to add the manual is outstanding - very clear directions, and excellent explanations of each experiment. 7 is a little too young to fully understand what is happening in each experiment, but he still loves doing them. I highly recommend this chemistry set!

5 star rating  A NEW YORK PRIZE for CHEM C1000
Rose Wallace from Stone Mountain GA
I gave this to my grand-nephew in January,2017. He had asked for a "real chemistry set with glass test tubes". He called on April 1st to say that he won 3rd place in his county's regional science fair for 9th graders( upstate New York). His project "Luminescence", explains how light works, He received 5 additional awards including one for " the most deserving energy related project."

Jill from Atlanta
Before purchasing the 3000, I wanted to give this one a try. My son is a bit old for this one, but as a beginner kit there was enough to keep him busy with it still (now a solid 2 weeks after Christmas) so I think it was worth it. His favorite experiment is turning the liquid from blue to red.

4 star rating  Jamie
Jamie from USA, IL, Elmhurst
It was a good introductory kit. The instruction manual did a good job of starting with basic concepts and building on them. The chemicals and equipment were clearly marked, which was also helpful. The only thing I didn't like was that some things required for the experiments weren't included in the kit (for example, denatured alcohol). But I still think it's a pretty high-quality kit.
