The Chem C3000 Advanced Chemistry Set by Thames & Kosmos has been updated and improved. As an advanced chemistry set for kids, the C3000 features high-quality lab equipment to use when conducting 333 educational and exciting experiments. While children will be able to conduct all of the experiments included in the C2000 chemistry set, additional chemicals and lab equipment give kids so many more fascinating possibilities. As the most complete professional grade chemistry set on the market, the C3000 allows children to explore everything from halogens and organic chemistry to conductors and toxic gas. An included tripod can hold the glass test tubes in the perfect position when consistent heat from the alcohol burner is needed. Utilizing the full-color experiment manual, kids will learn how to properly work with and clean each piece of professional grade lab equipment before conducting the many experiments that tend to look more like magic than science. While this is ideal for children who want to pursue a career in some field involving chemistry, forming and supporting opinions with evidence are valuable skills that all kids can use throughout their lives.
With 192 full-color pages, the Chem C3000's experiment manual provides much more clear and easy to follow instructions. Beginning with an introduction to parents, proper safety precautions are stressed to ensure children will be able to conduct the 333 experiments safely and successfully. While this chemistry set for kids is safe, proper precautions should always be in place when working with chemicals and fire. While key information and cautionary statements are colorfully highlighted to ensure each experiment is conducted safely, the experiment manual gives children and parents detailed photographs and illustrations to help in arranging each incredible experiment. Young chemists will know exactly how to prepare and follow through with each experiment. Key reactions children witness in the experiments are explained in What's Happening Here?? boxes and helpful blue tips boxes are dispersed throughout the manual to help children achieve the best results with their experiments. Thought provoking questions accompany most experiments and the manual clearly explains how particular experiments have an impact on technology and the environment. Children will not only gain a full understanding of how each chemical reaction works, but also why it is important to us in the real world, making each fantastic discovery even more meaningful to them.
While this chemistry set is ideal for science-minded kids to use at home, the high quality materials and advanced experiments make it a total chemistry curriculum older kids can use to prepare for upper level chemistry studies in high school and college. Active young learners will have fun gaining an understanding of the fascinating properties of chemistry, while safety is stressed throughout the experiments to ensure that children handle lab equipment and chemicals properly. Kids will love unlocking the mysteries of the natural world by mixing ingredients, causing reactions with heat, and using the scientific process to record what they observe during each exciting hands-on interaction. Thames & Kosmos makes chemistry fun and educational for kids with the C3000 Advanced Chemistry Set. Even after conducting all 333 experiments, kids can extend their chemistry knowledge by developing experiments of their own.
