Do you have an enthusiasm and passion for science? Join UQ’s Science Demo Troupe for hands-on activities including vortex creation, optical illusions, levitating superconductors and liquid nitrogen Burger Rings. This interactive and educational experience can be enjoyed by anyone.

The UQ Demo Troupe is a group of volunteers interested in spreading enthusiasm for science.

We regularly meet to practice our various science demonstrations and to come up with new, more exciting ones. We frequently visit schools to run science activities, and also regularly present lecture demonstrations for various undergraduate subjects at The University of Queensland.
