Turn water into a solid and make it disappear as you amaze the crowd. They'll watch you pour water into a cup and then instantly turn the cup over and nothing will come out! Magic! Science! Solid Water! Amaze the crowd with this incredible Solid Water kit. It also comes with a growing polymer alligator that grows and grows inside the test tube when you add water.

Enjoy some hands-on learning fun as you measure and keep track of the alligator's growth.

The incredible secret is the science of superabsorbent polymers that absorb many times their weight in water. You’ll learn more about these incredible molecules as you explore the special Water Gel™ powder. Just a pinch of powder turns water into a solid gel!

You’ll also learn about evaporation as you watch the alligator shrink back to his original size when exposed to air.

For more disappearing water magic check out our water gel.
