Eva received the Project Mc2 Ultimate Lab Kit to review this week. She loves her Camryn Coyle Doll she reviewed earlier this week & was ecstatic to receive the Ultimate Lab Kit too. Project Mc2 is a Netflix series aimed at encouraging girls to enjoy S.T.E.A.M based activities. S.T.E.A.M stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Maths. Definitely a good choice for girls Eva’s age!
Project Mc2 Ultimate Lab Kit
The fab Ultimate Lab Kit comes in a handy zip up plastic bag which opens up to reveal fantastic storage & science apparatus. Project Mc2 Ultimate Lab Kit is suitable from 6 years & requires adult supervision with several experiments. The set comes with safety goggles, a Microscope, glass slides, test tubes with a stand, funnel, beaker, 3 lab bottles, PH strips, pipette, petri dish, safety goggles. The Ultimate lab kit also comes with a fashionable Mc2 ring & 2 sticker sheets & a book full of fun experiments to try.
This fantastic lab kit comes with all the basics to get started with some fun experiments & a booklet to help you out with 30 experiments to try! Each experiment requires household ingredients you may already have or can be easily found in supermarkets. This fun lab kit really does encourage girls to enjoy experimenting & having fun, Project Mc2 is definitely a new favourite here!
Having checked out the contents of this fab kit & tried on the safety goggles & Mc2 ring, we took a look through the book of experiments to see if we had any ingredients to help us get started.
Cloud In A Jar Experiment
The Cloud in a jar experiment is the first experiment we found in the helpful booklet full of experiments. It seemed simple enough & we had all the items needed. For this experiment, you will need an aerosol Ice Cubes & Boiling Water & the Project Mc2 beaker. We ended up making a cloud in a jar twice, the first time didn’t work out too well. Our hairspray may have sat in the cupboard a little too long, oops!
Creating A Cloud In A Jar
Trying again with my Sure spray we sprayed a little into the boiling water. We then sat the lid upside down with ice cubes on top & waited to see what happened. This experiment shows how a cloud forms, using boiling water which creates lots of warm water vapour.
Watching Our Cloud In A Jar Form
As the ice quickly cools it forms tiny water droplets AKA clouds! The aerosol spray gives water molecules something to hold on to which they need to do as they cool down. Our second attempt turned out a little bitter but our cloud definitely preferred to stay in the jar!
Eva really enjoyed this experiment & is writing a shopping list of ingredients for our next experiment. The Project Mc2 Ultimate Lab Kit is fantastic for getting girls excited about science & encouraging them to experiment. We try to encourage the girls to do things like this at home & having the Project Mc2 Ultimate Lab kit is definitely going to make that easier!
