The Kitchen Chemistry Science Show uses readily available materials and unsophisticated equipment. The development of the show is outlined and each of the demonstrations is described in detail. For each demonstration there is an explanation of the demonstration and, where appropriate, a suggestion for an extension to a whole class activity. Indications of safety precautions are also discussed. Further development of the Kitchen Chemistry Outreach Project is then outlined with a description of future plans.
