Institute of chemical process fundamentals at chemistry fun fairs

This year's chemistry fun fairs organized as International Year of Chemistry 2011 events are history. The Institute of chemical process fundamentals participated in the chemistry fun fair on June 6, 2011 in Příbram and on June 23, 2011 in Prague.

Whereas in Příbram we presented experiments on how to change white carnations into couloured ones or how to determine the acidity of a sample using a red cabbage brew, our stand in Prague offered a larger choice of demonstrations. For instance experiments using a microwave oven or a quiz testing the olfactory capabilities of the visitors. The bravest then could provide saliva for a DNA sample. Have a look at our photogallery.

The Chemistry fun fair in Prague was visited by approximately 8000 visitors that took advantage of the nice weather to have a look at 25 attractive exhibition stands. 

Have a look at the following video on how to change colour of white carnations or at photos from the chemistry fun fair in Příbram.
