About When people think of chemistry, usually images of fascinating color changes, explosions, incomprehensible formulas, undecipherable diagrams and toxic wastes spring to mind. Generally, not much attention is given to the benefits that the world's oldest profession has brought to our lives. But everything in the world is composed of chemicals and chemistry connects to virtually every aspect of our lives. Our medicines, plastics, paper, building materials, fuels and even our electronic equipment are direct results of chemists' abilities to convert natural materials into useful substances. This presentation uses dozens of demonstrations, including puffs and bangs and yes, magic, to illustrate why the study of matter and the changes it undergoes, is central to our lives. Links
