11th Annual Chemistry Magic Show

Presented by: The Carleton University Office for Chemistry Outreach

They’re either going to glow it up or blow it up!

The one-hour magic show will feature amazing glow-in-the-dark substances, fantastic colour changes, spontaneous combustion reactions and more. Even if you have seen the show before, we will have some new tricks up our sleeves so come see it again!
If the theatre is full, nearby classrooms will be available for attendees to watch the show on large screens.
Our goal for this event is to inspire, entertain and inform! We aim to wow you with the visual power of our demonstrations, highlight the underlying chemical and scientific principles behind them, and explain their applications and impacts on our everyday lives.


Show starts at 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 3:45 p.m.
Carleton University
Richcraft Hall (formerly River Building)
Room 2200


Admission is free, however they will be accepting donations of cash and non-perishable food for the Ottawa Food Bank. (Suggested donation is $3 or one or two food items per person).
