Make It matter
What kinds of materials have we discovered? And what can they do? This highly informative show will amaze students and inspire them to go out and create! See a ball of fire, create a gooey mess, and take a new look at the wonderful world we live in!

Learn about solids, liquids, gasses, and - you guessed it - the 4th naturally occurring but often ignored state of matter: Plasma! See how physical and chemical changes, some reversible and some non-reversible, will occur as heat is added or taken away. Learn about the man-made states of matter and while you're there you'd better watch out for Dr Joe's portable lightning!!

"The class have not stopped talking about the ‘coloured fire’." Benowa SS.
What is heat? Discover the secrets of heat – from a safe distance! Every chemical reaction either absorbs or emits heat, and every substance, if hot enough, will glow. Even your students are glowing! Watch the coloured flames, admire the power of cryogenic materials, and be amazed at the wonderful world of unseen temperatures!
