Stinks, Bangs And Booms: The Rise Of The Chemistry Set

A chemistry set is an educational toy allowing the user to perform simple chemistry experiments. Some of the earliest chemistry sets were developed in the 18th century in England and Germany, for use in teaching. More modern chemistry sets from the 1900s were intended to be toys.

Stinks, Bangs And Booms is a beautiful interactive site that tells the inception, the heydays, the decline and the resurgence of the chemistry set.
