Kit Standard

The kit Standard is a middle capacity set that expands the experiment portfolio of the kit Student both with regard to the selection of experiments as well as their capacity.

In the kit Standard, you'll find a collection of attractive experiments that are related to chemistry and light. For each type of experiment, you will find the corresponding student instruction cards, teacher´s methodological cards and the teacher´s manual with detailed explanations.

The kit contains chemicals in medium scale, providing a relatively robust capacity for experiments.

Everything in one suitcase saving your time

You do not have to look for supplementary chemicals, every chemical you need is included so that you can start experimenting right now and for the most part without the need for a dedicated chemical laboratory.

Attractive chemical experiments

You will obtain all the chemicals you need to do the most attractive experiments that fascinate students and kindle their interest for science. Let them discover the interdisciplinary connections through experiments they fall in love with.

Safe according to the latest standards

We have designed the experiments that poisonous and corrosive substances are completely avoided in student experiments which thus meet the most stringent requirements of the current legislation. Therefore, even student of lower grades can also perform the experiments under the supervision of the teacher. All chemicals are labelled according to the latest CLP guidelines (Classification, Labelling and Packaging) and are provided with the corresponding Material Safety Data Sheets in English.

Methodically linked to the curriculum plans

The context of the experiments is linked to many topics that are commonly contained in curriculum plans of primary and secondary schools.

Instructions manuals for students and teachers

We provide clearly written student instruction cards, teacher´s methodological cards and a teacher's manual.

Possibility to refill the material

We offer to existing customers the possibility to purchase any part of the kits at reasonable prices.
