Attractive and safe chemical experiments linked to educational programmes
Yes, transport costs within EU and Switzerland are included in the price of Student and Professional kits. Shipments to UK and Ireland are included only in the price of Professional kit, in the case of Student kit, transport surcharges will be calculated individually.
Shipment costs to non-European countries will be determined individually.
As the producer of the kits, we routinely have most items in stock and we usually strive to despatch the kits within 3 business days after a receiving your order.
Yes. The kits were designed primarily with regard to the curriculum. One of the main goals of the Chemistry and Light project is to use attractive experiments to illustrate the curriculum that is commonly taught at elementary and secondary schools. In the instruction card, you'll find a thematic list of topics linked to each experiment.
The kit Student is primarily designed as a compact student kit that you can integrate into chemistry classroom and laboratory activities at elementary and secondary schools.
The kit Professional is a comprehensive and high-capacity set that greatly expands the the portfolio of the kit Student.
In the kit Professional, you'll find a complete set of the most exciting experiments that are related to chemistry and light and that will certainly fascinate most students, including the teacher himself. The kit contains the chemicals in large scale, providing an ample capacity for experiments.
Most experiments from the kit Student are designed to allow the students to prepare the experiment, conduct it briefly and evaluate it in one hour of laboratory lessons. However, a great number of experiments can be done quickly and easily as an enrichment of chemistry lessons with minimal time-consuming preparation (minutes).
All experiments from the kit Student can be done in a normal classroom without the need for a hood. Some experiments are very suitable for outdoor activities (photochemical blueprinting-cyanotypes).
Yes. The experiments with the photosynthesis are linked to biology, while the experiments with cyanotypes can find their way into art education.
For each experiment, there is a comprehensible instruction card where you can find a list of chemicals, tools required to carry out the experiment, description of the curriculum framework, a detailed procedure and a brief theoretical explanation of the observations.
Besides these student instruction cards, a separate card containing methodological notes for teachers is provided for each experiment. The aim of these cards is to make it easier for students and teachers to prepare and conduct the experiments. In addition to these cards, the teacher is provided with a manual that covers the individual topics of the kit in more depth.
You will find the list of separate experimental modules as well as their capacity listed at each kit description.
Yes. The compounds are packaged according to the latest CLP guidelines (classification, labelling and packaging of compounds and their mixtures). Each item in the kit has its own Material Safety Data Sheet which you can download in the client section on the webpage. The guidelines for the proper storage of the chemicals are to be found on each label as well as in the corresponding Material Safety Data Sheets.
The enclosed cards with methodological notes shall provide troubleshooting for most commonly encountered problems. Should you have more questions, you can contact us via email, online chat on the web page or if urgent by the phone.
Yes. We have a bonus system for the kit Student – see more info at the kit description. Larger orders can be treated individually.
