The History (And Future!) of the Chemistry Set

The History (And Future!) of the Chemistry Set

Whatever happened to chemistry sets? They turned entire generations of children on to chemistry, and they also have their own illustrious history. Hank takes you through a tour of the chemistry set over time, and tells you how you can be part of the push to bring them back with their Science Play and Research Kit competition! http://reimaginechemset.org
