In-School Assembly

Solids, Liquids, and Gases

Imagine a test tube as large as your students, and watch as the solid and liquid inside react and become a gas... What happens when a balloon is fitted over the top? Introduce your students to the science of chemistry through the use of some unusual demonstrations.
