Turn water into a solid in the blink of an eye! This powdery substance is an amazing compound that scientists call a “superabsorbent polymer.” It soaks up between 800-100 times its weight in water instantly, changing liquid water into a slush-like solid the moment it is added.
The instructions are full of fun activities and science experiment ideas. You will learn cool “magic” tricks that will amaze your friends. You’ll also find out another place to find a polymer very much like this one in the strangest place imaginable—a baby diaper! Use your imagination and science smarts to devise and carry out experiments of your own.
Water Gel™ is a great base for fun, fast science fair projects for students.
