Magic Shows are a way that our club is able to share our love of Chemistry with the community. During magic shows, qualified students, go to Schools, Neighborhoods, and other public places to perform Chemistry Experiments. Our shows last anywhere from 30 min to 1 hr. These shows are free. It gives us an opportunity to share our interests and “magic” through service.

 

Anyone is allowed to request a Magic Show. To do so, under the Magic Shows menu, select Schedule a Magic Show and fill out our application.  You will then receive a confirmation email once we have seen your request and have added it to our schedule. Because we are college students, and our schedules can be very busy, expect the confirmation email to come within a week of your sent in request. Please schedule shows at least 2 weeks before your requested date. In our request form we ask for your first priority date, and then a second. Due to college tests, events, and maybe even a high request for Magic Shows, your priority date may not be met.

Starting August 21st 2018:

Due to increased Requests for off-campus magic shows, we have established a new policy for requesting Magic Shows to better meet your needs and ensure we can manage the demand.

1.      We will only schedule up to 8 off-campus magic shows per semester (Sept–Dec, Jan–Apr, May–Aug). Preference will be given to large groups, school assemblies, and other public outreach events.

2.     If your group can come to campus, we will schedule as many on-campus events (BNSN building, BYU campus preferred) as requested. For room scheduling purposes, events after 3:00 pm are preferred but not required.

3.     If you have a special event such as a fund raiser, STEM fair, or large public or private event, please contact David Michaelis (dmichaelis@chem.byu.edu) directly for information and scheduling. A donation to Y-chem may apply for commercial events to help cover the cost of the show.

Each magic show includes several different types of “Chemistry Magic”. Here is a list of possible experiments that could be included in your show;

 

– Elephant toothpaste

– Flame tests

– Slime

– Liquid Nitrogen Magic

-Color-Changing Indicators

– Color Clock Reactions

– Explosions

– Flaming Tornado

– and many many others!
