  • Flame test activity allows students to study the emission spectra of different chemicals
  • The kit is made safer without compromising the experiment by burning small, chemically-distinct candles
  • Students will learn how a substance's chemistry can be determined based on emission spectra
  • Includes enough material for six groups of students
  • Kit includes teacher's manual, student study guide copymasters, and material safety data sheets for all included materials
 IMPORTANT – GROUND SHIPPING ONLY: This product contains hazardous materials and cannot be shipped by air. Ground Shipping Only. Product is ineligible for Free Shipping promotions.

Flame tests in chemistry involve the observation of emission spectra from combusting material in order to determine the chemical composition. Traditionally, this test can pose a risk in a laboratory setting. By using small candles, this flame test cuts down on the risk while providing the same scientific value. Students will observe the flame spectra through the incuded spectroscope and determine the composition of the burning material. This kit aligns with Next Generation Science Standards MS-PS1-1&2 and HS-PS1-2&4, and explores cross cutting concepts such as scale, patterns, proportion and quantity, and energy and matter. Contains enoug material for 6 groups of students, and includes teacher's manual, student study guide copymasters, and material safety data sheets (MSDS).
