Chemistry Demonstration Shows  

Rubin Battino and John J. Fortman, professors emeritus of chemistry, Wright State University, have been doing 90-minute live chemistry demonstration shows for middle and high school students for more than 35 years. They estimate that over one quarter million students have seen these shows.
