Quick Review:

  • Kit for study of endothermic reaction process
  • Activities for creating endothermic reaction to monitor change in temperature
  • Examine commercial application, the instant cold pack, for further examination
  • Materials for 15 groups of students for hands-on learning
  • Teacher's manual and student study guide copymasters for instructional use


When chemical reactions absorb heat the environment around the reaction becomes colder. Students will create an endothermic reaction and monitor the change in temperature as the reaction occurs. Students will then examine a commercial application that exploits endothermic reactions, the instant cold pack. The kit contains enough materials for 15 groups.


Kit Includes:

8 pkg x 2 tabs Sodium bicarbonate/citric acid tablets
15 Plastic cups
15 Stirring sticks
15 Bags containing: 25 g Ammonium nitrate, 1 tbsp Vermiculit
