The kit comes with a book of simple experiments, a plastic tray, a packet of black powder, and two plastic test tubes. My kids did the first experiment in the book, "Create Your Own Black Lagoon". Its a very simple experiment where you create slime (or Ooblack) using the black powder packet, water, the plastic tray, and a spoon. I loved that all the extra materials were things that we had on hand already. Here are some pictures from our experiment.
