Table of Contents
1. Silver Mirror
2. Flame Spectra
Suitable ions, methanol, flame 🔥 and… fireworks 🎆🎇.
3. Copper Nitrate Fountain
Chemical reactions cause variations in concentration, temperature or pressure that allow to generate bright and colorful fountains ⛲.
4. Golden Rain
Some precipitates are so spectacular that they almost turn them into works of art.
5. Spectra in Discharge Tubes
Another search for color and for deciphering the bar codes hidden in each radiation.
Fireflies? Algae? Luminescent phenomena are always the most evocative.

With a design of more than 350 years, just like that. It connects us to the essence of liquid buoyancy and expansion.
8. Newton’s Cradle
A very well known device that does not prevent new studies every year that are equally interesting.
9. Siempre fuimos nómadas (in Spanish)
Dramatizing passages of science, like the best Sagan here, is something that usually works very well with students.
All those moments of emotion that were lost with the pandemic are collected here in instants of other years.
