About the show

From the team behind the long-running 'That Physics Show' comes this new science spectacular for families, led by veteran "mad scientist" Borislaw Bilash. More…

A candle that moves water; a paper cup that won't burn; a firefly without fire. An atomic flash; weaponized sugar; a hydrogen bomb. Genie in a bottle; secret writing; elephant toothpaste. All these and more comprise 'That Chemistry Show,' which combines the worlds of science and show business. Best for school-age kids.
