We heat things up in the first half of our science show with the basics of chemical reactions. We explore exothermic and combustion reactions, and we discuss energy transformation with fire experiments and elephant toothpaste. Students discover the science behind the “BOOM” as we walk them through the main ingredients of combustion—energy, fuel and oxygen. In the second half of our science show, we investigate the properties of liquid nitrogen and its effect on phases of matter. We end the show with a big bang, and our love of science will surely rain down on all your students!
