Slimy stuff is everywhere! Our bodies make great slime, but we are amateur slie artists compared to other animals. Check out the hagfish; a small one can glooup up a bucket of water! Even plants make slime: seaweed is a type of plant called an alga. It gives u s great gels and slimes. In fact, the sodium alginate slime we use in this kit is made from seaweed! Slimes can be thought of as semi-solids; they range from runny to slimy, even to gel-like substances, by way of the formation of chemical bonds between their big molecules.
This kit lets you dive headfirst into a bucket-full of slimy experiments and projects. Make slimy tadpoles, leech soup, rat guts, blood clots, and other disgusting inventions all through the 'magic' of chemistry! As you experiment and tinker, you'll learn about real scientific subjects, objects, and topics, such as hydrated crystals, cross-linked polymers, and ion diffusion/gels. Makes a great gift for kids who like their science a little slimy, a bit gross, and definitely weird.
