Air Force Academy Chemistry Department – Meet at the front of the Field House.

Dazzling Chemistry Demonstrations!

During this fun and exciting workshop, you will get the opportunity to practice chemistry demonstrations, hands-on; that you can use in your classroom.  We’ll have demos appropriate for all grade levels for you to try, as well as the opportunity to ask questions.  Dr Ron Furstenau and Dr Gary Balaich have over 50 years of combined experience of using chemistry demonstrations safely in their classrooms, as well as giving chemical demonstrations to all age groups in our community.

The workshop will include a chemical magic show (a showcase for cool, but very good teaching demos), a sample lesson on how to incorporate demos into your daily lessons, and lots of time to try a wide variety of demos.  Each participant will receive a copy of the demo manual used at the USAF Academy Department of Chemistry, as well as a copy of the Chemistry Magic Show manual.

Presenters:  Dr. Ron Furstenau & Dr. Gary Balaich, US AFA Chemistry Department
