"Dyeing" Sodium Polyacrylate with Metal Ions - Student Laboratory Kit
Sodium polyacrylate, the superabsorbent polymer found in disposable diapers, absorbs immense amounts of water. Did you know that it will also remove heavy metal cations from solution? The cross-linked polymer contains a large number of sodium ions. W...
Gluep Production - Guided-Inquiry Kit
The Gluep Production Lab is a real-life, open-ended, discovery activity with an element of corporate competition. Student research teams are challenged to use the scientific method to improve a polymer recipe and make a bouncier Gluep ball-all while ...
Grow-Dino Measurement - Student Laboratory Kit
Do Grow-Dinos really grow more than 600% when placed in water? Your students will find out as they investigate the growth of a polymer dinosaur over a period of five days. Physical measurements—length, height, thickness, perimeter, area, volume, mass...
Modeling Nanotechnology - Encapsulation by Sodium Alginate - Student Laboratory Kit
Nanotechnology is the study of the preparation and properties of atomic, molecular, or macromolecular particles in the size range of 1–100 nanometers. An exciting new breakthrough in nanotechnology involves the delivery and transport of medicines to ...
Recycling Plastics by Density - Student Laboratory Kit
The United States produces almost 100 billion pounds of plastics every year, yet only 4% of this amount is recycled. Recycling plastics is a special challenge because of the variety of plastics in everyday use. In this student lab kit, students inves...
Slime for Everyone! Student Laboratory Kit
Slime, slime, and more slime—it stretches, it flows, it even picks up ink! With our new, economical kit, you'll have enough materials for each and every student in your class to make a batch of slime. Students will have fun as they perform observatio...
Small Scale Synthesis of Polymers - Activity-Stations Kit
We use polymers every day! In fact, it is difficult to identify items that do not contain polymers. Despite their tremendous variety, all polymers are basically made by either addition or condensation reactions. Three independent “mini-lab” activitie...
Structures and Properties of Polymers - Activity-Stations Kit
From a natural polymer that comes from seaweed to a synthetic polymer that's in the Guinness Book of World Records, polymers have unique and interesting properties. In this activity-stations lab kit, students investigate the properties of polymers an...
