Try out this magic trick and learn some chemistry while you're at it!
This video introduces the topic of acids and bases to an elementary school audience. The video starts with a chemistry "magic show," where I pour a clear liquid into a series of apparently empty beakers, creating a different bright color (red through violet) in each one. This is a stunning demonstration that, even as a skeptical adult, I still find so cool. In the rest of the video I explain the "secret" behind the magic: Acids and Bases.
