UQ Science DemoTroupe

We are a group of volunteers interested in spreading enthusiasm for science! We visit schools, present lectures and give demonstrations from fire tornados to levitating superconductors!

Who are we?

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.

About us

What do we do?

Ever thought about channelling a million volts of lightning? What about putting your hand in liquid nitrogen at 200 degrees below zero? Or maybe taking a nap on the infamous Bed of Nails?! These are just some of the death defying science stunts you'll see from the nationally acclaimed UQ Demo Troupe! From the science of smashing bananas to firing rockets, these shows are guaranteed to be exciting, entertaining AND informative!
