SPICE: Guidebook for a Traveling Outreach Program

Type: M    |    Level: Al Levels

The SPICE (Students Participating In Chemical Education) traveling demonstration program has been an enormous success, having reached 70,000 people in the last 20 years. In the SPICE Guidebook we have assembled our experiences on how to organize and put on a program of demonstrations in schools or public places. Includes "scripts" of demonstrations, advice on gearing an activity to different audiences, notes on safety, a bibliography of demonstration source-books, and suggestions for hands-on activity events.
