Perform over 100 safety tested experiments with the Chemistry Lab and its easy to use and informative Instruction Booklet, written by Dr. David Webster – a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and a Chartered Chemist. He has been teaching practical chemistry for over 40 years, and is the author of a chemistry textbook for younger secondary school children. He has designed and tested the 106 experiments in this instruction booklet. The experiments, which get more difficult and involve more complex ideas as you move through the booklet, are a collection of safe chemical experiments to carry out using both the chemicals and equipment in the Chemistry Lab, and common chemicals and other readily available materials, many of which you will already have at home. The experiments are intended to show you some of the magic and mystery of chemistry, and the relevance of chemistry to your understanding of what is to be found in your home and in the world around you.
