A variety of chemical demonstrations are performed at schools in the Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada area. These demonstrations highlight several general chemical principles to encourage interest in chemistry of the students at the schools.

This will be a chemistry demonstration show performed at Saipoyi Community School in Standoff, Alberta on Wednesday, October 19 2011 at 2:00 pm.  A demonstration like this one will provide the students with an opportunity to “see” chemistry as opposed to just reading about it.   Performing these demonstrations for elementary and secondary students might get them thinking about attending the University of Lethbridge after high school, and it might excite them about pursuing a career in the sciences.  For elementary students, the demonstrations just plain excite them.  The demonstrations are excellent public relations for the University of Lethbridge and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.  Also, helping the teachers in this manner strengthens ties between the University and the schools in the surrounding area.
