Demonstrations

SPICE members are trained to perform many compelling experiments that trigger 'oohs' and 'aahs' from children and adults in the audience.  The demonstrations illustrate core concepts and ideas in chemistry such as changes in matter, combustion, catalysts, reactions and so much more!  

Demonstration shows usually consist of 6-8 experiments and run anywhere from 30-60 minutes long depending of the length of show requested.  SPICE brings all the materials needed for a show and has their own transportation to and from events.  All necessary safety precautions are provided and taken by the SPICE team.  Additionally, we are a non-profit organization, however we do have to pay for the costs of transportation and supplies used in the demo shows.  We ask for a $75 donation per event. 

Our current list of demonstrations include: 

  • Elephants Toothpaste
  • Luminol
  • Filter flask cannon
  • Liquid Nitrogen and He Balloons
  • Liquid Nitrogen and bananas
