Mr. Coffee Nerves: Posting in the correct thread - how hard can it be?
Somaticasual: The problem with modern chemistry sets is that, through the years of idiotic media scares, they're down to about 5 or 6 ridiculously boring experiments.
meat0918: Baking soda and vinegar only go so far.I've got an old "Boy's Guide to Science" from the 60's that has some interesting chemistry experiments for kids, but I don't know where to get some of the things to do them.
markie_farkie: CSB:When I was 10, I got a chemistry set with some pretty powerful stuff in it (early 70s, you could sell shiat like that and not get sued into the Stone Age) and the first thing I did was mix two of the items it said to NEVER mix.It puffed a huge cloud of smoke, and I freaked out and dropped the little beaker out of the set, spilling whatever it was that the reaction created into the styrofoam tray that all the vials, test tubes, etc were packed in, and completely reduced the entire "101 Experiment Master Chemistry Set" to a puddle of pink ooze, interspersed with what was left of my birthday present.SCIENCE!!
