I'm a Chemistry teacher from Turkey and I would like to know how to obtain one of the experiment kits so that my school can take part in the Global World Experiment. I just can't seem to find where to get one from.

Thanks for your help

Dear Ilkay Aydemir,

Thanks a lot for your participation in the Global Experiment.

You shouldn't need a kit for the experiments, if your school doesn't have the right material, you should be able to find it in a normal shop.

The protocols were made so every school can conduct the experiments easily, without the need of a special kit.

I hope you can find an experiment you can do with the material you have in your school.

Please let us know afterwards how it went and how your pupils liked it,

Dear Ilkay,

As one previous correspondent said, you should be able to collect all the necessary equipment (small containers, droppers, etc) easily. The pH measurement needs a common indicator, Bromothymol blue and another one, m-cresol purple. The Water Treatment experiment needs household bleach and alum, which one can usually buy in a pharmacy.

Please let me know if this information will help you to do the experiment.
