4. Materials

Materials and Equipment 

To do this experiment you will need the following materials and equipment:
  • White glue (1 small bottle), such as Elmer's
  • Bamboo skewers (12)
    • Science Buddies Kit: The kit contains 24 skewers, enough to do the experiment twice.
  • Chemicals; 12 grams (g) each of:
    • Copper sulfate
    • Strontium chloride
    • Boric acid
    • Sodium chloride
    • Cupric Sulfate
    • Lithium Chloride
    • Sodium Carbonate
  • Masking tape
  • Pen or marker
  • Small vials or ziplock bags for the chemicals (4)
    • Science Buddies Kit: Each chemical in the kit has its own jar just large enough for the chemical plus a skewer tip. No additional vials or ziplock bags are needed.
    • Vials should be fairly narrow and short; just large enough to hold the chemicals and 1 inch of the tip of a bamboo skewer.
    • Ziplock bags should be small; 2" x 2" or 2" x 3" would be ideal.
  • Chemical goggles
  • Disposable latex or nitrile gloves
  • Paper towel (4 sheets)
  • Matches (1 box); the strike on box kind work best but any type will do
  • Solid fuel tablet (1); Esbit 14 g tablets 
    • Science Buddies Kit: The kit contains 2 tablets, enough to do the experiment twice.
  • Aluminum foil
  • Hard nonflammable outdoor surface like a sidewalk, driveway, or brick/concrete patio
  • Container of water
  • Heat resistant bowl (1); a soup or cereal bowl would work well
  • Lab notebook
  • Optional: video camera or digital camera and tripod
  • Optional: flashlight
