  • IDENTIFY ELEMENTS FROM COLORED FLAMES || The flame test is an analytical technique often used for the identification of certain elements, primarily metal ions. This experiment incorporates small candles and a spectroscope to determine which element is causing the colored flame
  • ENGAGING ACTIVITY || Explore and simulate how geologists and scientists use the flame test for fieldwork. During the experiment, the color of the flame is observed and the spectra of light emitted from the flame is viewed through a spectroscope to determine the element that gives the flame its color
  • EXCELLENT FOR REMOTE LEARNING || Great for Distance Learning and home schooling - kit includes instruction manual, worksheets and enough materials for 5 groups of students. Makes an exciting home science project!
  • MATERIALS INCLUDED || Kit includes everything needed to conduct the experiment - boric acid in methanol, sand, color flame candles, alcohol burner, diffraction slides, spectroscope and small trays

The flame test is an analytical technique often used for the identification of certain elements, primarily metal ions. The color of the flame is observed and the spectra of light that is emitted from the flame is viewed through a spectroscope. Traditionally, this test poses safety concerns for students in a laboratory setting. This kit minimizes these concerns by utilizing small candles that are easier to manage in a lab setting. There is no loss in the clarity of the emission spectra from the candles, making it easy for students to observe and deduce what element is causing the colored flame. This kit contains enough material for 5 groups.

Great for distance learning and home schooling - kit includes Teacher's (or Parent's) Instruction Manual, safety data sheets, student guide and worksheet copymasters.

Kit Includes:

  • 2mL Boric Acid 10% in Methanol
  • 250g Sand
  • 1 package of Color Flame Candles (12 qty)
  • 1 Alcohol Burner
  • 5 Diffraction Slides
  • 1 Spectroscope
  • 12 Small Trays

Innovating Science Small Group Learning kits are designed to offer engaging activities and educational content to for teachers to use with small groups or to distribute to remote students, or for parents with learners at home. Kits incorporate applied math and science principles into home school and distance learning projects.
