The Foundation Chemistry Kit shows how science experimentation can be cool

I was able to test the Foundation Chemistry Kit: Cups and Bubbles (Yellow Scope). I think it’s pretty interesting. They say it’s for girls, but I think it’s for boys and girls. It can also be for all ages.

The science kit contains many things. The things inside are:

  • 3 cups
  • safety goggles
  • thermometer
  • timer
  • Stir bar
  • 3 sets of tablets (purple, blue and yellow)
  • Food coloring (red, yellow and blue)
  • Sodium bicarbonate
  • citric acid
  • Votive candle
  • Chalk cloth
  • chalk
  • colored pencils
  • pencil sharpener
  • pencil
  • Notebook
  • Chemistry badge

A lab notebook is also included to guide you through scientific concepts: chemical reactions, molecular motion, and the influence of temperature. You will end up using all of this stuff for the experiments.

I liked the science experiments. They were pretty cool. One experiment was mixing the citric acid and sodium bicarbonate with tap water. First I put the sodium bicarbonate and citric acid in a beaker and mixed them together. Then I put 100 milliliters of cold tap water in another beaker. I added food coloring to the water. Then I put the water in the cup of powder and bubbles rose. That was really cool. Then it was time to give soap and it got soapy.

I thought the science kit was really cool. I’ve done a lot of experiments with it, but I wish I could have done more. There could have been more experiments with the chemicals. It explained the science of the experiment in the notebook that came with the kit. If you like this set, you can choose from others to test it out.
