This show has it all—solutions that instantly change color, giant piles of foam, great balls of fire and more! Your students will see a variety of types of chemical reactions and learn how to recognize when chemical reactions are happening.
OMSI’s stage programs bring concepts to life with thought-provoking demonstrations and audience participation. While the minimum number is 60 students, smaller groups are welcome to register for programs reserved by another group or pay the $180 minimum.
This program takes place in the OMSI Auditorium. Combine this program with a field trip to the museum.
A minimum of 2 weeks' advance notice is required for all registration requests. If you have questions, please contact us at 503.797.4661 or
