Hey crystal growers! Ready to grow a beautiful crystal and make it into a cool nightlight that will glow in a spectrum of colors? We thought so!!!
First you'll grow the crystal from alum powder, then you'll wire up the nightlight circuitry, then you put them both together. Ready, set... grow!
You'll get to learn about the chemistry of crystal formation and the physics of light and color. The platform contains a color-changing LED circuit (which you build with our included instructions and parts) that will illuminate your crystal with an array of color. Get ready to have the nerdiest, but coolest, nightlight on the block!
Great toy project for any STEM focused kid, and actually any adult... now that we think about it!
Ages 8+. 100% cool.
To complete your project you'll also need a few things you should have laying around the house: two empty jars, paper, scissors, tape, string, screwdriver, glue and tweezers.
