Science Mad Chemistry Lab

Science Mad Chemistry Lab – AD sent for review and giveaway

disclosure:  we were sent the item mentioned for the purpose of review and giveaway

What child doesn’t love mixing potions and chemical reactions?  We were recently sent the Science Mad Chemistry Lab set from Trends UK.  It’s aimed at children aged 10 years and over, and as my son will hit double digits in a matter of a couple of weeks, we thought we’d give the set a tryout.

Science Mad Chemistry Lab

The Science Mad Chemistry Lab comes with ten different chemicals, an assortment of laboratory apparatus including a methylated spirit burner, along with full instructions to complete over eighty different experiments.

There are other items that you will need to provide to complete some of the experiments such as methylated spirit, distilled malt vinegar and bicarbonate of soda.  These are clearly mentioned at the start of each experiment so you can easily check ahead.  You may also need some empty bottles with lids to store your chemicals for a short time after your experiments.  But I’m not known for holding on to things like this, so we disposed of liquids as we completed different tasks.

The instruction manual that comes with the Science Mad Chemistry Lab set is very comprehensive.  It explains the risks associated with each chemical element provided in the sealed pots, how to look after the safety goggles provided as well as how to set up a chemistry laboratory correctly.

The experiments themselves are easy for children to read and the instructions are clear.  The various experiments include soluble and insoluble substances, invisible inks, paper chromatography, looking at acids and alkalis to name but a few.

This set isn’t one that will take a few minutes and all the tasks will have been completed. Science Mad Chemistry Lab offers a lot of learning potential and a great number of activities to be completed.  It’s worth pointing out that each of the chemical pots are supplied with a childproof twist and turn lid for safety.

We’ve only looked at a few experiments so far, and my son has been totally engrossed, taking it all very seriously and just enjoying the experience.  Learning along the way.

He’s made a sodium hydrogen sulphate solution which forms the basis for a number of other experiments.

He then looked at how carbonates react with acids and used some of the sodium hydrogen sulphate solution he’d made and added it to some sodium carbonate.  He then watched as the substance started to fizz as carbon dioxide gas was formed.

He then went on to look at colour changing chemicals, first by adding litmus blue powder to water to see the water turn blue, and then by adding tartaric acid to that solution, and then to see it change to red.

The Science Mad Chemistry Lab has a £29.99rrp and can be purchased retailers such as SmythsVery and Littlewoods.
