Magic Chemistry

Four students eagerly looking into a test tube filled with different layers.
Perform real magic--using chemistry!

CAMP EXPERIENCE:

You don’t have to be a witch or a sorcerer to perform magic, you just have to have to know chemistry! Learn how to:

turn a flame green
set ice on fire
write a secret message with invisible ink

You can turn pennies into silver and gold, light a candle using smoke, and rub your fingers together to make them glow in the dark and smoke! These magic tricks are no sleight of hand. They all involve chemistry and have simple explanations, but you don’t need to let your audience know that!
