6 ridiculously dangerous science experiments from kid



6 ridiculously dangerous science experiments from kid’s old chemistry sets

Weren’t things better back in the good old days when children were free to create gunpowder and be let loose with uranium dust?
In the 50s and 60s chemistry sets offered lists of instructions about “how to make an explosive mixture”, while Ladybird books aimed at kids suggested all manner of dangerous science experiments.
And they’re much more risky than burning processed cheese to find out what’s in it.
Rosie Cook, assistant curator at the Chemical Heritage Foundation has some pretty brilliant advice – “Don’t lick it, don’t eat it, don’t sniff it, they are pretty good rules to live by in general.”
That advice could also be about the processed cheese.
Anyway, here’s some of things that have been encouraged over the years:
We’ll include the disclaimer now – for God’s sake don’t let you kids actually do/play with any of this stuff. Unless you want to let your kid create a bomb. WHICH YOU SHOULDN’T.
