Fun With Chemistry

Fun with Chemistry is a science outreach program provided by the Department of Chemistry at The University of Texas at Austin. The program makes chemistry come alive and fosters interest in learning and discovery for students of all ages. We demonstrate fundamental principles of chemistry through explosions, liquid nitrogen ice cream, the production of slime, instant snow, and other fun activities.
