This classroom kit takes students through the basics of what polymers are and how they form. Following a brief introduction, your at home learners will use the chemicals in the kit to form two different polymers: long, squiggly worms, and thick, viscous slime. Young students will love playing with polymers while simultaneously learning about how they benefit us in our everyday lives.
