SJKids Love Chemistry!

by Mr. William Mahaffy - Monday, May 11, 2009

On Saturday, Mr. Mahaffy, Ms Morrell and some student Chemists wowed them at the First Annual SJKid Fair. is an online resource for families and is part of the Healthy Families, Healthy Communities Association (HFHCA). Almost 5000 people attended the free fair.

Our intrepid chemists had the crowd of pre-school and elementary school mad scientists hopping with dry ice experiments, magical colour change reactions, a mentos/diet coke fountain that christened the ceiling of the new Cruise Ship Terminal and, of course, explosions and great balls of fire.

Of course, what would a SJHS Chem demo be without explosions and cascading sheets of flame?! Visit for more news about this great community event!
