Chemistry Magic Show - Carleton University

Our 9th annual Chemistry Magic Show at Carleton University. 

The show is this Saturday (February 27th) at Carleton University. Below is a description of the show and the details.

The one-hour chemistry magic show is filled with amazing glow in the dark substances, fantastic colour changes, spontaneous combustion reactions, fluorescent minerals, and much more. In addition, families can get their hands dirty with hands-on activities making slime and using liquid nitrogen to make real ice cream. They can also learn about pleasant and not so pleasant smells and the chemistry of wine and chocolate, as well as see some our demonstrations up close.
