At Praxis we encourage people to increase and enjoy life-long learning in math and science. One such science that is truly amazing for demonstrations, etc is Chemistry.

Through the use of interesting and exciting chemistry demonstrations, we at Praxis are able to engage people of all ages and encourage them to consider science as an area to continue to grow and learn.

We as an organization want to celebrate the International Year of Chemistry by bringing a chemistry professor from Edmonton, Alberta here to Medicine Hat, Alberta to do some exciting chemistry demonstrations for students.
