Chemists from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Free Radical Chemistry
and Biotechnology will present cool chemistry shows and hands on
activities. 

Make your own silly putty and scratch and sniff stickers; find out about
glow sticks and forensic investigations; and be amazed by explosions and
the magic of chemistry.

Live science shows will be presented throughout the day:

 

Energy without CO2 show

The search for more efficient and clean ways to transform energy is one
of the biggest challenges for Australian science. 

With pops, bangs and flashes, Mick will demonstrate the way that the
energy for transport, heating, lighting and cooking could be harnessed
without generating CO2, and we'll look at some new clean technology that
will reduce the build-up of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

Melbourne.
