Designed specifically for the needs of educators in and out of the classroom, the ANS Cloud Chamber Kit includes materials to build four cloud chambers. The only things the educator needs to provide are rubbing alcohol (91% for best results) and dry ice.

Also included are an illustrated step-by-step manual for setting up and using the cloud chambers and a classroom poster to help students identify the types of radiation they may observe.
