Cool Chemistry event for kids set at UW-Green Bay, Manitowoc Campus | Herald Times Reporter

Families are asked to attend only one show as attendance at each show is limited to 350 people.

MANITOWOC — The UW-Green Bay, Manitowoc Campus, will host a free “Cool Chemistry” event aimed at helping kids get excited about science.

Two shows will take place at University Theatre April 25. One show, targeted to kids ages 3-8, will be at 4:30 p.m. and the second, targeted to kids ages 9 and older, will be at 6:30 p.m.

The show will include numerous scientific experiments, and the audiences will see explosions, color-changing solutions, solid foams, dry ice fog, fire and more, according to the news release from UW-Green Bay, Manitowoc Campus.

One experiment, called “Elephant’s Toothpaste,” uses a strong solution of hydrogen peroxide mixed with dish soap and a catalyst to create a huge column of foam.

The release said there isn’t an official schedule of experiments, but some past favorites have included homemade lava lamps and glow-in-the-dark chemistry.

Kids will have the chance to make their own slime after the two shows.

Amy Kabrhel, a professor for UW-Green Bay, Manitowoc Campus, and organizer of the “Cool Chemistry” shows, said she wants to get kids interested in the sciences.

“I want them to see how much fun science can be,” she said in the release. “I hope that some kids get excited enough to consider a STEM career in their future.”

Doors to the University Theatre will open 45 minutes before each show starts and only 350 people will be admitted to each show. The shows are free and open to the public, but families are asked to only attend one show.
