    Hi I was wondering if you guys know any VERY cool labs I could use?
    I want to demonstrate the lab to my student body and i want it to interest them very much so we get more students interested into sciences.

    My chemistry teacher put a gummy bear in a test tube with a salt that she melted down and it caught on fire.

    Another cool one I always liked was the gas collection over water lab.

    I don't know what kind of equipment you have, but you could do the lab where you test money for illegal substances. 80% of all money is contaminated with controlled substances.

    You could also do the lab where you calculate the surface area of a gram of activated carbon. It blew my mind once we calculated that just a spoonful size of activated carbon has the same surface area as a tennis court!
