30 Demos in 60 Minutes!

Science Demonstrations

30 Demos in 60 Minutes Youtube Channel


This site shares science demo ideas for physics, chemistry, biology and earth science. 30 Demos in 60 Minutes originated with Dr. Courtney Willis at the University of Northern Colorado. For ~20 years Dr. Willis had his pre-service secondary teachers present demonstrations in front of seasoned teachers. This was a nerve-racking experience; but, also an excellent way to become confident in presenting demonstrations in the classroom! After his retirement UNC faculty have carried on the tradition.

Seeing the value in this format, I have brought 30 Demos in 60 Minutes to AAPT (American Association of Physics Teachers) and NSTA (National Science Teachers Association). The popularity of these events has motivated our YouTube channel and this website to share demo ideas.

Have Fun!!
