Hands-On Fun Doing REAL Science

 

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) ACTIVITY KITS

These inexpensive science activities give students in grades 2-6 the ability to do hands-on fun science.... INSTANTLY. Each activity kit contains most, if not all, of the "ingredients" needed to perform the activity and a worksheet that allows the student to follow the scientific-method while performing the experiment, along with theory and practical uses. Great for use by teachers in the classroom or by parents as an activity that they can share with their kids. Everyone will have some fun and learn about science.

These kits are used by educational institutions, home schoolers and science museums to provide quick, simple, super-easy science lessons. They are so inexpensive that many institutions provide them as free giveaways to attendees at special events. Science Paks (SCI-PAKS™) offer 10 ready-to-go activity kits. Also available packaged for retail sales, they make an excellent addition to your museum's retail store, providing patrons with an inexpensive take-home activity that can be enjoyed by the entire family.

FREE SAMPLES, QUANTITY DISCOUNTS and BULK PACKAGING (SCIENCE-PAKS) are available to schools, teachers, home-schooling organizations, science museums and science centers, and any institution involved in science education.

 

 

SCIENCE ACTIVITY KITS

SCIENCE-PAKS (SCI-PAKS™) SAVE YOU MONEY! Kits contain the same items as the retail kits but are not bagged for retail sale. Availible in multiples of 10 per pack. Kits are ready to hand out....no additional work required.


POLYMERS - LET IT "SNOW"

In this activity, you will investigate the properties of a polymer know as Insta-Sno™. This is a substance that dramatically changes its properties when in the presence of water, from a dry powder to fluffy-white snow-like substance. In the process, it expands to many times its original volume.

KIT CONTENTS: 4cc Insta-snow, one mixing bag, instructions/worksheet
ADDITIONAL MATERIAL(S) REQUIRED: Measuring cup, water

POLYMERS - SLIME

In this activity, you will investigate the properties of a polymer fondly known as "slime". When the two liquids in this kit are mixed, a remarkable change in their physical state takes place. Opaque and transparent in various colors, selected at random.

KIT CONTENTS: Dilute PVA glue, saturated borax solution, mixing cup, mixing stick, instructions/worksheet
ADDITIONAL MATERIAL(S) REQUIRED: None

POLYMERS - THE BALL OF MYSTERY

In this activity, you will investigate the properties of a polymer that is initially in the form of a small hard ball. The ball will grow into a large crystal-clear sphere as it absorbs water.

NOTE: This is a slow activity. Ball growth occurs over several hours.

KIT CONTENTS: Two polymer hydrogel balls, one cup, instructions/worksheet
ADDITIONAL MATERIAL(S) REQUIRED: Ruler, water (distilled water if available)

CENTRIPETAL/CENTRIFUGAL FORCE - THE ANNOYING BALLOON

In this activity, you will use a balloon to force an object to follow a circular path and, at the same time, make a very annoying, yet fun, sound. You will learn about centripetal and centrifugal force. You will also OBSERVE what happens when a restraining force (the string) is suddenly removed from a swinging object.

KIT CONTENTS: Balloon, nut, string, penny, instructions/worksheet
ADDITIONAL MATERIAL(S) REQUIRED: None

SCIENCE ACTIVITY KIT, SCI-PAK™, 10 PACK     CENTRIPETAL/CENTRIFUGAL FORCE - THE ANNOYING BALLOON     PART NUMBER: SAK4-B

THE VORTEX - TORNADO IN A BOTTLE

In this activity, you will investigate the properties of a water vortex. You will observe the creation of a vortex and what happens when air pressure (or a lack of air pressure) interferes with vortex formation. You will also observe the different fluid speeds that occur in a vortex.

KIT CONTENTS: Bottle connector, neutral buoyancy beads, instructions/worksheet
ADDITIONAL MATERIAL(S) REQUIRED: Two smooth-side soda bottles (1 or 2 liter), water

WATER MAGNIFIER - MAKE SMALLER BIGGER

In this activity, you will make a lens using a single drop of water. You will observe how the shape of the "lens" changes the amount of magnification. You will also observe the phenomenon of HYDROPHOBIA.

KIT CONTENTS: Magnifier activity card, eyedropper, instructions/worksheet
ADDITIONAL MATERIAL(S) REQUIRED: Water

POLARIZER

In this activity, you will experiment with POLARIZED plastic sheets, also known as polarizers or polarizing material. They have an almost magical ability to control light. Using the filters, you will observe the polarizing properties of other items.

KIT CONTENTS: Two pieces of polarizer film, instructions/worksheet
ADDITIONAL MATERIAL(S) REQUIRED: Polarized sun glasses

SCIENCE ACTIVITY KIT, SCI-PAK™, 10 PACK     POLARIZER     PART NUMBER: SAK7-B

ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT

In this activity, you will investigate the properties of ULTRA-VIOLET (UV) light. You will use the included detector to see where UV is strongest and where it is weakest. Is there UV under an umbrella? What happens to UV at different times of the day? Can you get a sunburn under water? Does sunscreen really work?

KIT CONTENTS: Waterproof UV indicating card, instructions/worksheet
ADDITIONAL MATERIAL(S) REQUIRED: Sunlight, sunscreen lotion (varying SPFs), misc. materials (paper, plastic), sunglasses
