Kit Student

The innovative kit Student is designed directly for primary and secondary school students, whether in the chemistry laboratory itself, in the classroom or as an entertaining learning tool for outreach activities. The aim of this kit is to introduce the natural sciences to children from a different point of view and to enable them to understand the subject matter with the help of entertaining colour and light experiments, leaving a wonderful hands-on experience.

Each experiment is accompanied by an instruction card with a detailed and comprehensible procedure to facilitate the preparation and execution of the experiment. The content of the kit Student is designed to meet the current safety requirements, while keeping the experiments simple and entertaining.

Recommendation: One kit Student per student or a pair of students is recommended for effective work.

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.

The kit Student contains

  • 7 comprehensible instruction cards
  • chemicals
  • tools
  • curriculum framework
  • safety guidelines
  • procedure
  • brief theoretical explanation
  • deposition of spent chemicals
  • methodological notes and tips for teachers on separate cards
  • teacher´s manual covering the individual topics in more depth

Experiments contained in the kit Student

Module peroxyoxalate chemiluminescence

  • nontoxic chemicals for peroxyoxalate chemiluminescence („motor of the reaction“)
  • dyes for chemiluminescence

    • a green-yellow dye
    • a red dye
    • a yellow-orange dye

  • catalyst of the chemiluminescent reaction
  • non-toxic and non-flammable solvent
  • hydrogen peroxide source in a safe and highly efficient form
  • auxiliary pipettes

Module description: Students will prepare in test tubes glowing chemiluminescent solutions with different colours. They will be able to influence the glow intensity (and reaction rate) by heating/cooling, change of pH and by addition of a catalyst.

Curriculum framework: Observation; Experiment; Safety; Chemical changes; Chemical reactions: factors influencing the course of the chemical reaction (temperature, pH, catalyst); Inorganic compounds: Use of acids and bases, neutralisation, pH; Organic compounds: heterocyclic compounds

Capacity: 125 test tube experiments

Module experiments with hydrogels

  • sodium tetraborate decahydrate (borax)
  • solid organic acid for hydrogel decomposition
  • pH indicator for studies of pH influence on the hydrogel structure

Module description: Students will prepare a crosslinked polymer (hydrogel) and verify its physical and chemical properties, especially its pH-dependent behaviour. As a result, they become acquainted with concepts of polymerization and reaction equilibrium.

Curriculum Framework: Chemical reaction: polymerisation, factors influencing the course of the chemical reaction (pH); Inorganic chemistry: acids and bases, pH, indicator; Organic compounds: hydrocarbon derivatives, use of their important derivatives; Chemistry and the society: plastics

Capacity: 100 experiments with hydrogel preparation on a small scale

Module photochemical blueprinting – cyanotypes

  • chemicals for preparation of the solutions for cyanotypes

Module description: Students will make their own cyanotype photographs with a photosensitive mixture of chemicals in the sunlight and thus get acquainted with an example of a photochemical reaction.

Curriculum framework: Chemical reaction: redox chemical changes, oxidizing and reducing agents; Chemical elements: iron; Inorganic chemistry: coordination compounds; Energy and chemical reactions

Capacity: 1000 A4 prints

Module photosynthetic printing

  • Lugol´s solution
  • negatives for photosynthetic printing

Module description: Students will produce an iodine-starch photo on the leaf of live plants. As a result, they will get acquainted with photosynthesis and the proof of starch by iodine test.

Curriculum framework: Photosynthesis; Energy and the matter; Natural products: evidence of starch, dyes

Capacity: 100 experiments

Module pyroluminescence

Module experiments with phosphorescence

  • green phosphorescent pigment
  • starting materials for the preparation of the phosphorescent glass
  • transparent foil with a printed text

Module description: Students will the test the phosphorescence of a phosphorescent pigment, compare it with fluorescence and prepare their own phosphorescent "glass".

Curriculum framework: Energy and the matter

Capacity : 100 experiments

Module experiments with fluorescence

  • fluorescein 
  • blue fluorescent optical brightener
  • samples of two woods containing naturally occurring fluorescent dyes
  • sample of a natural spice containing a blue-green fluorescent dye
