STEM Sampler Kit 3

Have fun with two hands-on STEM topics...Slime and Catapults. In this DIY kit, you will first investigate the chemical reaction that creates slime. Mix up your own batches of Glow, Silky, and Foam Slimes as you discover why slime is delightfully bouncy, stretchy and gooey. Then, build three different catapults to examine how levers, energy, and Newton's Laws of Motion all work together as you fling ping-pong balls while practicing your launching and aiming skills. This kit is more than hands-on...it’s hands in!
