You can tell that chemistry is important because of the way we use it in our everyday lives – without even knowing it. Washing the clothes, putting a new battery in the remote and baking a cake in the kitchen all rely on simple chemistry to enhance our lives.
But, what else can you do with the chemistry all around you? Come along to The Edge’s Old-School Chemistry Kit workshop to find out and take home the knowledge and equipment you need to begin your new adventures in science.
Mixing solutions to make bubbles of flammable gas, learning how to get electricity from scrap metal and salty water, or how to give something a shiny copper coating are just some of the tricks included in The Edge’s Old School Chemistry Kit.
Take a trip to the hardware and the pharmacy to find the ingredients you need, borrow a few things from that bulging third drawer in the kitchen, then add the safety knowledge you will learn at The Edge to explore the surprising variety of chemistry that is possible with stuff you pass by every day.
Wrap it all up in the retro design kit we provide and you have the perfect Christmas gift for the budding mad scientist in your family.
