Group Demos

Demonstrations for one flat rate available to groups or parties of any size! These will include short instruction to educate participants on the physical and chemical mechanisms at work, with interactive elements in each. Pricing may vary based on group size.

Elephant's Toothpaste

In this chemical demo, watch as a few substances from your bathroom cabinet come together for an impressive show! We will learn the basics of the chemical reaction at work, and then make observations and predictions about how changing our recipe will impact the outcome.

Van der Graaf

Our Van der Graaf generator sparks excitement and curiosity in everyone! For 30 minutes, learn about static electricity, and see what it can do not only to your hair, but to household objects like foil, lightbulbs, and tinsel.
