Overview: Steve Spangler's Magic Sand is a hydrophobic polymer; It's sand that never gets wet! It can be used to build underwater sandcastles! Build castles and other structures under the water. Simply pour the water off when you're finished and the sand is still dry! You can use it for fun science experiments again and again!
  • HOW DOES IT WORK?: Ordinary sand is free flowing and cannot form a structure that holds its shape. Magic sand may look like ordinary sand but just try to get it wet! Magic Sand begins as normal looking sand, until it's dyed and coated with a substance that repels water. This coating keeps the sand dry even after it has been dumped into a container of water. Because of its water-repellent properties, Magic Sand holds its shape and can even be molded into structures when under water.
  • STEM: Learn about the properties of water molecules and how hydrophobic products work. Kids can experiment with Magic Sand and then ordinary sand and note the differences in water-repellent properties. The possibilities are endless!
  • USE AND REUSE: Magic Sand is a reusable science toy! When finished, simply pour the water off and let the sand dry! You can use it again and again!
  • 3 EXPERIMENTS: Instruction Card Included with 3 Experiments: What Makes Magic Sand Magic?, Waterproof Finger, and Underwater Sandcastles.
