Optional Science Magic Show

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. The typical show lasts around 45 minutes and includes 10-12 science demonstrations. These include activities such as:

  • Dissolving Styrofoam cups
  • Inflating a balloon on beaker using dry ice
  • Making elephant toothpaste
  • Burning money (apparently)
  • Using liquid nitrogen to deflate balloons
  • Freezing and shattering flowers
 

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