Our campus student safety committee is about to hold its first Lab Safety Fair. I would gladly put you in touch with the student who's coordinating the demonstrations if you like. The overall theme is to have demos that would be dangerous if done differently, so we can educate the audience about the safety strategies used. I'll be doing the Rainbow Experiment - with salt-treated cotton applicators and a plumber's torch instead of watch glasses full of methanol.

I know they've got about ten demos worked out.

Good Morning-
Our EHS department is participating for the first time in the University-wide science expo and we are trying to come up with some ideas for demonstrations for our theme, "Safe Science".  Just wondering if anyone has ever done anything like this and could provide some suggestions?  Thanks!
