This explosive show is all about exploring the states of matter, and dry ice is the star of the show!  We'll begin by dissolving Styrofoam into slime, erupting ice into carbon dioxide, and then using body temperature as a lie detector.  Matt Simms, aka Hazmatt Bond, will demonstrate sublimation, air pressure, and how elements change form through bubbling potions, chemical reactions, and explosions!  And don’t miss the finale when we launch a potato across the room!
