Element of Surprise
Science Show and Workshop (4-6)

See the world in a whole new light through chemistry!

You have reached the main content region of the page.


We love learning so much we’ve built tools that allow us to extend our senses and discover even more. See the world around you in a whole new light! Together, we’ll use our tools to explore chemistry and reveal unseen properties.

It’s a fun and lively show, mixing explanation with interactive demonstrations to showcase different scientific processes. And just how relevant science is to everyday life.


Students complete a hands-on medical challenge using common household ingredients to see if we can protect a tablet from being absorbed in our simulated stomach (vinegar), learning about the properties each ingredient has to offer.
