Small Workshop or Big Show - We do both!

For small workshop sizes, each student will be able to perform each experiment.
For larger groups (10+) this workshop will be presented as a show, with volunteers from the audience having an opportunity to assist with the experiments as they are performed by the professional presenter.

 

Experiements

  • Dragon Fire

    Mist Fire Breathing
    You are going to learn how to take a common food ingredient that doesn’t burn,
    and use it to breathe fire like a dragon!
    (Don't worry we won't be doing it like the first picture)

  • Rainbow Fire

    Rainbow Fire

    In this experiment you will use chemistry to change the color of fire!  
    You will make fireballs of different colors.

  • Match Rockets

    Match Rocket Match Rocket

    Students will make rockets that actually blast off! 
    Using a single match-head students will learn how difficult rocket science really is!

  • Dancing Fire Tube

    Fire Tube
    Combine the power of sound with fire and you get the Ruben’s dancing fire tube! 
    Students will get to play with the sound to see how the fire reacts.

  • Fire Fighter

    Fire Fighter

    Extinguishing Candles: How many ways can you discover to put out a fire?

  • Explosive Water

    Water Fire

    Pure water does not conduct electricity very well. However if we add an electrolyte (like salt or bi-carb) the ions allow electricity to flow. The electricity can then be used to tear the water molecule (H2O) into hydrogen and oxygen gas. When we ignite this "fuel-of-the-future" it explodes and turns back into water!

  • Underwater Fire

    Can you make a sparkler keep burning under water?

    Fire Bubbles

    Bubbles are already amazing - add fire and they become incredible!

    Smoke ring shooter
    Pasta rocket

  • Barking Bottle
    Bottle Fire

    Learn what happens when you let liquid fuel evaporate inside a bottle, and then ignite it!

  • Balloon Boom

    Balloon

    You will mix chemicals to produce hydrogen gas, and collect it in a balloon. 
    Once your balloon is full of extremely flammable hydrogen gas you will safely & carefully ignite your balloon!
