Descriptions

Science Challenge

Pit yourself against the likes of Newton, Bernoulli and Ruben with our interactive Science Challenges! You'll be faced with pulling out the table cloth from a fully laden table, spinning a full glass of water without getting wet or singing with the correct pitch to make dancing flames. 

Super Duper Chemistry

Chemistry is everywhere! It is used every time you cook, every time you start a car and even when you eat and digest food. Come and unravel some of the mysteries of chemistry during this fun filled demonstration.

Fire and Fury

Fire is both an enemy and a friend to man; it can destroy all our belongings but at the same time feed us and keep us warm. Fire really is just a chemical reaction. Come and learn what three things are necessary to produce a fire and use scientific principles to explain some rather amazing phenomena!

Cryogenics – The Science of Cool

Do you think Alberta’s cold? This demo is way cooler! Come explore the science of cold as we discover what happens to the three states of matter when we rapidly freeze them to –196° C. As a special treat come sample our very own “Super-cooled Ice Cream”.

Illuminating Light Show  

Come one, come all to the Illuminating Light Show! This newly added demonstration will have you to staring in disbelief as we dazzle your sense of sight and show you all there is to know about light. You’ll see colours and shadows like never before as we take the confusion out of illusion.

Arcs and Sparks 

Discover the fascinating world of electricity and charged particles. Make hair raising and gravity defying discoveries as you learn about electromagnetic forces and the difference between static and current electricity. It’s electrifying!
