IGNITING THE MAGIC OF CHEMISTRY: Chemical Transformations and Perplexing Reactions

WSFB Website

Summary

With a BING, BANG, and KA-BOOM come and see how chemistry impacts the world around us.

In this colourful (and loud!) stage show, students will join QUT’s leading chemistry experts who will unravel the mysteries of the atom, explore molecular interactions and understand the many different behaviours of matter – be they solids, liquids or gas!

Moderated by award-winning science writer and presenter Bernie Hobbs this program is recommended for school students in Years 4 – 12.

IGNITING THE MAGIC OF CHEMISTRY: Chemical Transformations and Perplexing Reactions is presented with Education Partner, QPAC.

World Science Festival Brisbane’s Digital Education Program is supported by BHP and BMA.
