Cool Chemistry on Stage!
Have a blast (literally!) witnessing demonstrations of combustion, color changes, and polymers, and watching the incredible effects of liquid nitrogen! This exciting presentation takes an in-depth look at chemical changes and states of matter, observing various types of reactions and the byproducts created.
From seeing a “stoplight” reaction and learning how luminol works to examining the special properties of lycopodium, the wonders of chemistry will amaze participants. Discover all the fascinating ways we use chemistry in our daily lives, as we show you how fireworks get their color, why diapers are so absorbent, and what makes a car go!
