Welcome to the website for the Carleton University Office for Chemistry Outreach (CUOCO). We aim to educate and entertain the public with events to display the fun and impressive power of chemistry and its importance in our daily lives.


CUOCO is pleased to announce the following upcoming event:


THE THROWBACK 2014
CARLETON UNIVERSITY

AND

NATIONAL CHEMISTRY WEEK
CHEMISTRY MAGIC SHOW:


SATURDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2014


BLAST FROM THE PAST!






with Professors Bob “Blow It Up” Burk and Jeff “Magic” Manthorpe




















TIME, LOCATION, COST and TICKETS:

TIME: The show is Saturday, October 18th at 11:30 to 12:15


LOCATION: The show will be held in Room 2200 of the River Building. This will be our first ever show in this beautiful new location. It’s a 10-minute walk to the stadium so you will have plenty of time to grab some food before the game.

just left of the train tracks.


COST: The show is free; however we will be accepting donations of cash and non-perishable food for the Ottawa food bank.


TICKETS: There are no tickets and the show is open to all but we are asking alumni and other guests to register in advance, just to help us have an approximate idea of attendance.

What can you expect? The 45-minute magic show will start at 11:30 a.m. and we’ll have plenty of colourful reactions, flames, and explosions! If you’ve never seen our show before it is definitely not to be missed! And even if you have seen it we can guarantee you haven’t seen every trick we have up our sleeves! The show is appropriate and fun for everyone ages 5 and up. Please be aware that there will be loud noises that may scare some small children.



Want a sneak preview? The video clip on the left below is a preview of our Chemistry Magic Show. The clip on the left is an interview from CTV2’s Ottawa Morning Live from May 2012, when we were getting ready for our very first outdoor magic show at night! It was a phenomenal success! What does that mean? We’re going to do it again in May 2015! We will also be having our 8th annual Chemistry Magic Show and Expo on Saturday, February 28, 2015.
