OPTION 1 - Magic trick chemistry

You must supply the materials yourself (e.g. baking soda & vinegar). This must be a safe demonstration! Your job is to show us the demonstration and thoroughly explain the chemistry. If you like, you may include a video of the demonstration to supplement (but not replace!) a live demonstration. A few sites to find chemistry demonstrations and activities are given below. There are many more out there!

OPTION 2 - Chemistry in film and TV

Choose a scene from TV or film in which chemistry is used. The scene should be no more than 2 minutes. Bring in the film or TV clip, describe to the class what they’re going to see, what chemistry to look for, and then follow up the clip with a short presentation describing all the CHEMISTRY used (or misused!) in that clip. NOTE: You must supply the clip yourself (e.g. YouTube link, Netflix scene, etc.).
