Product Details

Grow a Bat

You'll be able to have your very own bat, and watch proudly as it grows up over the next few days. Starting out at just a couple of inches long, it will grow to up to 600% of its original size. 8 All you have to do is place it in a container of clean water at room temperature, and then sit back and watch as your bat matures.

Growing animals and other things (brains etc!) that are made to increase in size in water are made up of two polymers. One is poly(vinyl acetate) which keeps the original proportions and shape of the item or creature and the other polymer is polyacrylamide which is the super absorbent polymer. The growing creatures have many teaching applications in science and math, including graphing, drawing conclusions, and measurement using linear, mass and volume. The Growing Creatures Book by Anne Linehan and Betsy Franco details measurement and data collection projects integrating math and science.
