Liquid Nitrogen Show visit for vacation care: Fizzics Education


Liquid Nitrogen Show

Liquid Nitrogen Show

Investigate properties of materials in this "cool" performance.

Witness the many ‘cool’ liquid nitrogen demonstrations

Find out how solids, liquids and gases change when rapidly heated and cooled.
Smash a squash ball! Shrink a balloon instantly!
What happens to living things if they are frozen?
How can Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion explain a liquid nitrogen sprinkler?
Explore Charles Law using popping cans and expanding balloons.
Just what is the Leidenfrost effect anyway and more…

This holiday science show covers phase changes, expansion and contraction, basic cell theory, air pressure and the weather. Plus there’s an option to make ice-cream…yum!

This performance can also be viewed as a LIVE web conference anywhere in the world!

Vacation Care Reviews

Bellevue Hill BASC

I liked the interaction with the children, level of control of children and interactive nature of the experiments. The ice cream was exciting for the children. The show was terrific and really maintained the children's attention. They listened so enthusiastically and were really excited by all the experiments. Thanks!
