Science has never been sweeter! Learn the science of sugar with this activity-packed kit.

Sugar is the building block for the 10 supersweet activities and experiments in Sugar Science Kit. Follow easy, step-by-step instructions to make sweet treats and learn the science behind sugar bubbles, floating eggs, and burping balloons with the included:
  • 32-page lab book
  • Sugar balloons
  • Sugar bubble wand
  • Wood rock candy sticks

  • Sugar Sparks: make candies that glow in the dark
  • Burping Balloon: inflate a balloon without using your hands
