Chemistry Behind the Magic

This set of videos showcases exciting live chemistry demonstrations held at MIT. Through the magic of chemistry, Dr. John Dolhun and Dr. Bassam Shakhashiri create things that steam, fizzle, and glow. Each video also provides a deeper look into the chemistry that makes it all possible. For teachers, we have provided supporting materials to help you understand and replicate the experiments in your own classrooms. These videos can be watched in any order.
