The Alchemist Matter is an educational tool for children from 5 to 12 years old to make their first steps in chemistry, learning with creative, hands-on activities how science can be useful.

The project has been funded on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter early 2015. Thank you to all my supporters !

The activities require the supervision of an adult.

With the Alchemist Matter full kit you can give shape to your ideas, create a single material capable of floating in water or sinking like the Titanic, and remove a stain with the speed you can make it!

The full kit is composed of three modular test-tube racks:

Drop of Ink to watch and learn how matter behaves when it comes in contact with a little—or a lot—of water! Then, produce different materials to create portraits, or to craft models. For children 5 years and older.

Sink or Float to mold a unique material able to float or sink and decorate your goldfish’s aquarium with a raft, some seaweed, and a sunken ship! For children 8 years and older.

Stop the Spot to remove stains from white cotton fabrics, learning basic chemistry reactions for each type of spot. This knowledge will come in handy to invent materials with erasing properties! For children 8 years and older
