The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Arizona has a long history of engaging our community. CBC faculty and staff members, as well as our graduate and undergraduate students, participate in numerous outreach activities involving K-12 students and their teachers, fellow researchers in other fields, non-profit organizations, and the general public. We organize week-long summer science camps, workshops and chemistry "magic" shows for local schools, tours of our research labs and facilities, as well as public lectures and events. We love the opportunities to show the amazing world of chemistry to students young and old!
Due to the large number of requests for Science Demonstration "Magic" Shows we have received, we are no longer accepting requests for the Fall 2018 semester. We currently are accepting requests for the month of April 2019 only. Sorry, we do not do shows in the summers.
We will start accepting requests for shows in Fall 2019 on August 5, 2019. Please submit your request at least 4 weeks prior to your requested date. Requests are more likely to be fulfilled if the show is for a school-wide presentation, whether it be at an assembly or on a Science Night. Please note that these free shows are presented by CBC students, who try to fit them into their busy school/work schedules as best they can. It is very difficult for our presenters to do back-to-back shows for 4-5 classes, so to avoid disappointment, we ask that you not make these types of requests.
Generally our students cannot commit to presenting a show until 1-2 weeks prior to the date. Please understand that no matter how early in the semester you submit your request to us, there is no guarantee that a presenter will be available on the date requested. Thank you for understanding.
