Chem C3000 Kit
Get a complete introduction to chemistry
with this deluxe, hands-on set! The Chem C3000 has more than 333 experiments that cover a broad range of chemistry topics, making this experiment kit ideal for older kids who just can't get enough of this subject.
They'll get to conduct water electrolysis, make potassium permanganate lose its color, test for starches, create precipitates, do flame color tests, make chromatograms of leaves and chemicals, generate electricity from a test tube, set off time-delay and redox reactions, break down sawdust into glucose, and even depolymerize a yogurt container.
The lab projects and scientific explanations in this kit make it thorough enough to be used as a chemistry course. The 192-page manual is in full color, and teaches more advanced chemistry concepts such as chemical equations, atomic structures, and the periodic table. You provide some extra materials for the experiments. Adult supervision required. Ages 12 & up.
Safety Note: This set contains chemicals that can be harmful if not used according to the safety directions in the lab manual. You will be working with very small quanities, but some of the projects can still potentially be dangerous (making chlorine gas, igniting various metals, etc.). Wearing safety equipment is highly recommended.
Shipping Note: This item contains regulated chemicals and only ships Economy or Ground to a street address in the 50 US states.

I got this kit for my children. It has a ton of REAL chemistry experiments on a level which one might find in high school or college beginners labs (except that it avoids titration or any quantitative stuff really).
We have so far done less than 10% of the experiments, but the children have already learned a lot. A few examples are:
Cu 2+ ion detection using the Cu(NH3)4 complex, Fe(III) detection by making prussian blue, Cl- detection using silver nitrate.
I usually provide some background on chemical equations, (they're introduced a bit later in the manual), on technical terms (the manual is written on a fairly high level) and other details not mentioned in the text etc. to improve the educational aspect. For instance you might want to teach your children to balance equations (the kit does introduce redox reactions), to calculate pH values (only introduced qualitatively by the kit) and to discuss solubility products among others. In other words, the kit avoids any kind of math (which might be a good or bad thing, depending on your point of view). But I let the children set up and perform the experiments (it does require some restraint to see your daughter handle 2M HCl; you will be tempted to take over!)
An important note: this kit lacks 5 chemicals which you have to purchase separately (due to legal restrictions and limited shelf life). These chemicals are: HCl (2M), (NH4)OH (2M), Na(OH) (1M), 3% H2O2, and 1% Ag(NO3) all of which you can get from this store. If you buy more concentrated stuff (say concentrated HCl, NH4OH, H2O2) you have to dilute it down (some math required); and for the stuff coming in solid form (NaOH, AgNO3) you'll need a balance (none included in the kit) to make the appropriate solutions (or you have to eyeball it). The kit also asks for 'household chemicals' such as vinegar, citric acid, hartshorn salt, baking powder etc. some of which you might as well want
