The UT Arlington Science Ambassadors are a group of advanced undergraduate science majors who present science shows to school groups (grades 3-12) visiting the UT Arlington campus. A typical show includes 10-12 science demonstrations and activities such as:

  • Breaking down styrofoam cups to demonstrate lab safety
  • Inflating a balloon using dry ice
  • Making elephant toothpaste
  • Burning money (apparently)
  • Using liquid nitrogen to contract balloons
  • Freezing and shattering flowers

You will be contacted separately by the Science Ambassadors to schedule a show before or after your Planetarium show.
