Stem Sampler Kit 2- Engineering and Chemistry with pH- Ages 8+ with Adult, or 12+
Have fun with two STEM topics...engineering and chemistry with pH. Take your first steps into engineering by designing and building your own Art-Bot. These fun and silly robots are popular with both children and adults. Using the Activity Guide, with detailed picture instructions, the fun begins as you build your own Art-Bot with a motor, battery holder and more! Then, give your robot a personality with the craft supplies included in the kit. This STEM kit is not just hands-on....it is hands-in. Then, step into your own science lab to test the pH of six everyday substances. The exciting part of testing for pH is that the mixture changes color. The final color will indicate if the substance tested is an acid, a base or a neutral. This experiment will have your child excited about the science side of STEM! Plus, enough pH indicator will be provided so this experiment can be conducted again to test other items found around your home.
