Ray's magic is an excellent way to start the year with some exciting
chemistry . I do the patriotic demonstration and the students like that
very much. We look at the chemistry involved in the color changes and
formation of precipitates. I also introduce the balancing of equations.
Some students have the notion that they will blow up something in chemistry
so I give them a ballon to blow up that first day. Best to let them know
early that we will practice safe chemistry.

Dear teachers,
  First, let me say that I am impressed by the discussion, and the
producers of this series at Educational Film Center are delighted as well.
We're glad that you are getting so much from the series, and most
importantly, from each other.

  A few messages back, Jeff Bulgrin said that he was unable to watch the
videos. The videos are aired on the Channel via broadband stream on our
website. Currently they're shown on Wednesday at 8 a.m. & 8 p.m. and also
at 4 p.m. and 4 a.m. Next Wednesday, program 7, "Chemistry and the
Environment" will be shown, the following Wednesday, March 19 will be
program 8: "Chemistry at the Interface." There will be no 4 a.m./p.m.
repeat of this program.

But that's not the end of the workshop series. We'll be running it again
in the summer and fall. Go to:
http://www.learner.org/channelinfo.html?uid=168&sj=SCI to see
future broadcast dates. In addition, in the very near future, you'll be
able to watch individual programs, on demand, on the learner.org Web site.
I will send a note to this list when they are up for screening. Again, you
will need a broadband connection to view them.

Keep up the interesting discussion!

"A Demo a Day: A year of Chemical Demonstrations" published by Flinn
Scientific Inc. telephone 1-800-452-1261 is an excellent guide. Flinn
Scientific is also an excellent resource for chemical storage safety
information.
The Shakashiri Chemical Demonstration Videotapes are also a worthwhile
resource.

There are a number of great books out there - available from any science
supply house (a demo a day is one of my favorites). There are also lots of
internet sites! Just type in demo + whatever youre looking to show and you
should get great results. Tina Falconer
