Chemistry Experiments with a magical aspect that can be realized with items and products that can be found in any home kitchen


 My idea is to create an album of experiments of "Spectacular Chemistry" to be achieved with items and products that can be found in any home kitchen.
The realization of the experiments does not require any specific preparation, and therefore can be easily reproduced by everyone, young and old people: as if they were real magicians, they can make a real show of spectacular Chemistry at home, at school, in the streets, everywhere with simple and common materials. The main aim of this album is to make kids understand chemistry through spectacular magical effects that certain chemical reactions can generate. The "Mission" of the project is to surprise and attract young people from an early age to the study of Chemistry, remembering a quotation of St. Thomas Aquinas: "Wonder is the desire for knowledge”, that is a desire which comes to man when he sees something amazing.

Topic: experiments, show Audience: general public, students, secondary schools, school children, high schools, primary schools
