Liquid Nitrogen Show

Liquid Nitrogen Show

Investigate properties of materials in this "cool" performance.

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, expansion and contraction, basic cell theory, air pressure and the weather. This performance can also be viewed as a LIVE web conference anywhere in the world!

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 activities listed below will be covered during the conference.
  • Upon booking, you will receive a PDF outlining the materials that you can have on hand to make the workshop more interactive. It’s not a problem if you can’t source all of the materials, as we’ll have these on hand for the workshop
  • 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

Change to an object’s motion is caused by unbalanced forces acting on the object (ACSSU117)

The motion of objects can be described and predicted using the laws of physics (ACSSU229)

The action of forces that act at a distance may be observed and related to everyday situations. (PW2)

Cells are the basic units of living things and have specialised structures and functions (ACSSU149)

The properties of the different states of matter can be explained in terms of the motion and arrangement of particles (ACSSU151)

Australian National Curriculum Mapping for all our science workshops & shows

NSW K to 10 Science Syllabus Content
A student

describes the action of unbalanced forces in everyday situations (SC4-10PW)

discusses how scientific understanding and technological developments have contributed to finding solutions to problems involving energy transfers and transformations (SC4-11PW)

relates the structure and function of living things to their classification, survival and reproduction (SC4-14LW)

applies models, theories and laws to explain situations involving energy, force and motion (SC5-10PW)

explains how scientific understanding about energy conservation, transfers and transformations is applied in systems (SC5-11PW)

NSW K – 10 Science Syllabus mapping for all our incursions

Victorian F – 10 Science Curriculum

Cells are the basic units of living things and have specialised structures and functions (VCSSU092)

The properties of the different states of matter can be explained in terms of the motion and arrangement of particles (VCSSU096)

Change to an object’s motion is caused by unbalanced forces acting on the object; Earth’s gravity pulls objects towards the centre of Earth (VCSSU103)

Energy appears in different forms including movement (kinetic energy), heat, light, chemical energy and potential energy; devices can change energy from one form to another (VCSSU104)

The description and explanation of the motion of objects involves the interaction of forces and the exchange of energy and can be described and predicted using the laws of physics (VCSSU133)

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!

George Anderson Warpole School

The show was interesting and entertaining. Students were captured. It totally engaged the students. Visually encapsulating.

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
