Hi all, I’m looking to pick your brains for a good science set for a young teen but I want one that come with a Bunsen burner. They all seem a bit plasticky and young looking these days. I remember my brothers when we were growing up had all manner of potential to set the house on fire grin
The only one I’ve found so far in over £100.

Any recommendations? Thank you

You could use a small camping stove instead of a bunsen burner. How would you attach a BB to the gas supply or would you use a small gas canister?

I dunno hadn’t thought that far ahead! (Science is NOT my forte grin ) I remember my brothers one having fluid in the bottom and then you lit a wick. So probably not an actual Bunsen burner!
