Chemical Catastrophes

Tuesday 3 October

10am to 11am

Ages: 5+

Ingle Farm Library

Cost per child: $5

Come and meet our fun female scientist and learn about chemistry, its methods and its tools - which sounds kinda boring. But actually... it's mostly an excuse to spray cola over 20 feet into the air, make multi-coloured flames, create giant quivering mounds of foam and build jelly worms out of dead seaweed. Take the coolest chemistry demonstrations, add 1 slightly insane presenter and stir vigorously for 60 minutes. Result - scientifically verified fun.
