Course Detail: PHAB - STEM DIY Sampler Kit 2 - pH Testing and Art-Bot | age 8+ with adult supervision

Explore two STEM topics -- engineering and chemistry -- in one fun kit! Using the detailed picture instructions in the Activity Guide, step into engineering by designing and building your own Art-Bot with a motor and battery holder. Give it a personality with the craft supplies included in the kit. Then, head to your home science lab to test the pH of six everyday substances. Watch as colors change to indicate whether the substance is acid, base or neutral. You'll have enough pH indicator to test other items found around your home.
