Science LIVE! Magnificent Matter

Matter is all around us every single day, changing phases and states and even making brand new substances!

In our “Magnificent Matter” show, learn about how the three states of matter are related and how they can change from one into another.  We’ll take a look at non-Newtonian Fluids, learn about substances that love water and things that are absolutely terrified of it, and even light a few things on FIRE to learn about chemistry!

Morehead's innovative "Science LIVE!" programs allow students and teachers to interact with science in a fun, engaging way. Morehead’s “mad scientists” present live demonstrations of science principles with vivid, exciting experiments. Volunteers from the audience are invited to go "on stage" and become part of the show as "lab assistants."
