Science Show: Chemistry of colours
11 am in Archimede hall

Carnival is the festival of colors. Masks, costumes and jokes are characterized by the explosion of variegated colors. Using test tubes, pipettes, mysterious solutions we will create liquids that change color and we will find that what seem to us to be magic is nothing more than chemical reactions!
