School Science Stage Show... Liquid Nitrogen Show! | Fizzics Education

SCIENCE SHOWS, EVENTS & WORKSHOPS

Liquid Nitrogen Show

Liquid Nitrogen Show

Investigate properties of materials in this "cool" performance.

Super cool science show!

Students have the opportunity to assist in the many cool liquid nitrogen demonstrations

  • Find out how solids, liquids and gases change when rapidly heated and cooled.
  • Smash a tennis ball! Shrink a balloon instantly!
  • What happens to living things if they are frozen?
  • How can Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion explain a liquid nitrogen sprinkler?
  • Explore Charles Law using popping cans and expanding balloons.
  • Just what is the Leidenfrost effect anyway and more…

This science show covers phase changes in states of matter, expansion and contraction, basic cell theory, air pressure and the weather. This school science performance can also be viewed as a LIVE web conference anywhere in the world!

NSW Schools: Incursions can take place from Monday 15 June 2020

  • NSW Dept. Education:

Online Class Version

We’ve run live interactive distance programs since 2010 and are highly experienced in making online classes engaging for students on a variety of web conferencing platforms.

  • All of the same curriculum points will be covered, but the activities may vary from those listed for face-to-face incursions.
  • Our online classes include opportunities for students to ask questions.
  • Full child protections are in place
  • We usually connect to classes & homes via Zoom, however if you wish to use a different software we can work with you on getting the connection live.

Australian ACARA Content Outcomes:
Science

A change of state between solid and liquid can be caused by adding or removing heat (ACSSU046).

Heat can be produced in many ways and can move from one object to another. (ACSSU049).

Forces can be exerted by one object on another through direct contact or from a distance (ACSSU076).

Solids, liquids and gases have different observable properties and behave in different ways (ACSSU077).

Australian National Curriculum Mapping for all our science workshops & shows

NSW Science & Technology Syllabus Content
A student:

STe-4MW-ST
identifies that objects are made of materials that have observable properties

STe-5PW-ST
observes the way objects move and relates changes in motion to push and pull forces

ST1-6MW-S
identifies that materials can be changed or combined

ST1-7MW-T
describes how the properties of materials determine their use

ST1-8PW-S
describes common forms of energy and explores some characteristics of sound energy

ST1-9PW-ST
investigates how forces and energy are used in products

ST2-6MW-S
describes how adding or removing heat causes a change of state

ST2-8PW-ST
describes the characteristics and effects of common forms of energy, such as light and heat

ST2-9PW-ST
describes how contact and non-contact forces affect an object’s motion

ST3-6MW-S
explains the effect of heat on the properties and behaviour of materials

ST3-7MW-T
explains how the properties of materials determines their use for a range of purposes

ST3-8PW-ST
explains how energy is transformed from one form to another

ST3-9PW-ST
investigates the effects of increasing or decreasing the strength of a specific contact or non-contact force

School Testimonials

Alamanda College

Yesterday we had Ben visit us to perform the Liquid Nitrogen Show. Ben was great! He was very engaging and was able to answer student questions. He looked like he genuinely enjoyed what he was doing which created a great atmosphere! The show was very informative and engaging! We would highly recommend Ben and the show to any of our colleagues!

St Hurmizd Assyrian Primary School

I liked how the scientific laws were taught in a visual way, (as well as) showing practical tools used by scientists. I liked the idea of relating concepts to the real world... mixing scientific information with a variety of fun activities. Very successful.

Science Show Demonstrations

Safety of cryogenic substances

Liquid Nitrogen is - 196˚C, so what equipment must be used?

Fog breath

Is water present in your breath? Condensation demonstration.

The shrinking balloon

What happens to gases when rapidly cooled? Air pressure demo

Balloon blow up

Blowing balloons up from the outside! Transferring heat energy.

Lid launcher

Expanding gases have a lot of force - why can this be a problem?

The flying glove

Heating gases causes rapid expansion!

Ball smasher

Why can rubber shatter? Glass transition phase demonstration

Banana hammer

Can plant material survive instant freezing?

Liquid Nitrogen sprinkler!

Rapid expansion of Nitrogen can be utilised - what about water?

Cool lasers

How are lasers used in atmospheric research?

Frozen bubbles

Bubbles can give clues about our changing environment.

Cooling circuits

Proving chemical reactions slow when cooled.

Leidenfrost effect

Rapidly boiling liquids can hover over surfaces… how?

Levitating magnets

See the power within superconductors; future research in action
