Al Hazari has picked up his tie-dyed lab coat from the dry cleaners. This can only mean one thing—the “Magic of Chemistry Show” is just around the corner.
For the 20th year in a row, Al Hazari, director of labs and lecturer in chemistry at UT Knoxville, will dazzle crowds with his “Magic of Chemistry Show” at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 19, in 555 Dabney-Buehler Hall. The one-hour show is free and open to anyone, young or old.
Thirty-six middle and high school teams from across the state will compete Saturday, March 27, in the Tennessee Science Olympiad State Tournament hosted by UT Knoxville.
Al Hazari, chemistry professor at UT Knoxville, was featured on WBIR’s Live at Five at Four segment and showed audiences the magic and wonders of chemistry.
It’s an explosive event that typically draws crowds from throughout East Tennessee. It’s not Boomsday, though: It’s The Magic of Chemistry, and it’s happening at 7 p.m. tomorrow in Room 555 of Buehler Hall on the UT Knoxville campus as part of National Chemistry Week. The show, conducted by Al Hazari, a lecturer in the chemistry department, is known for helping introduce kids and grown-ups alike to the wonders of chemistry through a series of demonstrations.
