Carolina ChemKits®: Slime Time

2 Items Exclusive
$59.95 - $149.95 View Details

Don’t just make slime - make slime teach students about intermolecular forces and the properties of hydrogels. Students prepare 3 slime formulations and observe their qualitative properties. They then investigate the cohesive, adhesive, and viscous properties of slime and explain the role of intermolecular forces in them. Kit (item #840808) materials are sufficient for a class of 30 students working in groups of 3. Value Kit (item #840809) includes sufficient materials for 4 classes!

  • Create a cross-linked polymer slime
  • Measure cohesion, adhesion, and viscosity
  • Explain the role of intermolecular forces in the properties of slime
Turn a fun activity into a fun engineering activity. When students prepare and test different qualitative properties, they are learning valuable engineering skills. This kit is a great introduction to polymer chemistry and intermolecular forces for middle or high school and incorporates the NGSS Science and Engineering Practices of Analyzing and Interpreting Data and Using Mathematics and Computational Thinking. Kit (item #840808) materials are sufficient for a class of 30 students working in groups of 3. Value Kit (item #840809) includes sufficient materials for 4 classes!
