Kits & Publications Catalog
Want to communicate science? ICE can help. The Institute for Chemical Education (ICE) has kits, books, and tools to help you communicate the relevance, excitement and fun of chemistry. You will find short descriptions of each of these publications, grouped by Hands-on Kits and Demos; Hands-on Activity Manuals and How-To Guides; and Books. Single or multiple copies can be ordered using our ICE Order Form. Fill out the form and then submit your order by mail, e-mail, fax, or phone as noted on the second page of the order form. This form is a .pdf file that may be opened with Acrobat Reader. If you do not have Acrobat Reader installed you can download the application without charge at the Adobe site.
ICE has the experience, materials, and kits that you need to:
- teach about modern materials
- introduce nanoscience
- do relevant hands-on activities
- learn about running a summer chemistry camp
- use hands-on guide(s)
