PSU students plan chemistry magic shows for kids

Students in the Pittsburg State University Chemistry Club will demonstrate the magic of chemistry for area youngsters in a series of chemistry magic shows at Pittsburg’s Meadowbrook Mall on Saturday, April 26. In honor of Earth Day, the students have adopted the theme “Chemistry is Life.”

The free shows are planned for 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. They will be held near the north entrance to the mall between the Mall Deli and Bath & Body Works.

The chemistry magic shows are a revival of a longstanding tradition. The students have been staging similar shows on campus for visiting student groups.

The student organizers say putting chemistry into a magic show makes something that might otherwise seem difficult and boring exciting and fun.
