chemf 01 New in the Maker Shed: Edible Chemistry Kit

When I was little, I used to dump all kinds of ingredients from our kitchen into a measuring cup and tell my mom I was a scientist. I came up with some weird stuff and I’m pretty sure some of it is still stuck to the ceiling in our old house. This new Edible Chemistry Kit (available in the Maker Shed) will let you (and your kids) experience the excitement of being a scientist in a tasty, fun, and safe way. The kit includes plenty of ingredients and detailed instructions on how to make color changing soda, polymer pudding, foaming jelly, and several other experiments. You’ll learn all about acids, bases, solutions, formulas, reactions, carbonation, indicators, pigments, gels, and polymers in the best possible way; by using your mouth!

Also, for non-edible fun check out our Glowing Putty – Gels and Slime Kit!

I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I’m a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
