"Kunos coole Kunststoff-Kiste” is an experimental kit for primary school pupils that was initially developed by PlasticsEurope in Germany. It gives children the opportunity to discover plastics through five exciting experiments. The kit proposes five experiments: manufacturing a polystyrene ball, testing a superabsorber, building a little water-purification station, discovering the various properties of plastics films or finding out how a safety helmet works. "Kunos coole Kunststoff-Kiste” is an extremely helpful tool to develop STEM interest and knowledge of children from 6 to 10 years old. All experiments and material included in the box have undergone rigorous testing and are officially approved for use by children.  

The kit was introduced in 2001 and has meanwhile reached more than every second school in Germany. For more information on Kuno, please check the German language version of the website.
