Chemistry Shows

The Chemistry Department of the University of Fribourg offers large groups of visitors the opportunity to attend entertaining shows on the subject of CHEMISTRY. We use the ideas as an interactive tool to give children, as well as adults, a first impression of science and chemical experiments.

Every Christmas, Prof. Katharina Fromm, with the support of many different members of the institute, is launching a new spectacle full of chemical experiments, smoke and color! She had set up so many different performances up to today.
