Discovering Polemers – Demonstration Chemistry Kit
Investigate the chemistry behind polymers with the 4 activities in this kit.
Two activities explore superabsorbant polymers: the Invisible Crystal, a polymer with the same refractive index as water when hydrated; and the Super Sponge, the material in diapers that can absorb hundreds of times its own weight in water.
The third activity makes slime—is it a solid or a liquid? For the grand finale, turn a liquid into a rubber ball that bounces. Materials are sufficient for 5 demonstrations.
