What is the ChemTalk LiveLab?

The ChemTalk LiveLab is one of the most exciting innovations in science education the planet has ever seen. Amazing science and chemistry demonstrations, experiments, talks and interviews will be interactively live-streamed to people around the world, and viewers can ask questions, live chat and participate in real-time.

How can I receive the LiveLab schedule?

Enter your email here and we will send it to you.

 

How I can make suggest topics and give input?

Fill out this short google form. You can tell us which topics you would like us to cover, and which days / times work best. If you are a teacher / professor, we especially hope you will fill this out.

When will the LiveLab launch?

The LiveLab will launch in the first quarter of 2022.

How can I participate in the LiveLab?

We will livestream on Twitch, Facebook live and Youtube live. Enter your email above to receive the schedule.

Will the LiveLab be no-cost, ad-free and barrier-free?

Absolutely. Barrier-free means we add no additional logins, registrations, costs or hurdles to access our information.

Where is the LiveLab actually located?

We are in Camarillo, California – collocated within a hive of science & chemistry companies working to solve big problems like carbon sequestration, clean hydrogen production, improving catalyst functions, and creating biofuels.

How can I help the LiveLab?

You can donate, sponsor us, volunteer or apply for a paid internship. We are also looking to expand our advisory board.

If I’m a teacher, can my class participate?

Most certainly! We hope you will make suggestions here and ask your class to participate within or outside of school hours. We are taking request, and can create a session that matches or supports the topics you are teaching, or coordinate a time.

What age do I have to be to participate?

You can be any age. We expect many of our initial livestreams to appeal to a middle school / high school audience, a high school / college audience, or a general audience that is familiar with some very basic science. Once the livestream schedule is up, we’ll label each topic with a target age / level.

Who will be giving the talk and answering questions?

The live streams will feature some of the world’s most notable experts. In addition to ChemTalk team members there in person, each live stream will feature a professor, scientist or researcher from academia or industry to present or help with questions. We may even surprise you with a Nobel Laureate from time to time.

What will the LiveLab look like?

We are still setting it up, but here are some early photos. We also have storage areas for chemicals & glassware, and equipment like electric ovens, gas chromatographs, gas cylinders and reaction vessels not shown in the photos – with more to come!

What types of demonstrations are we talking about?

There are endless possibilities for what we can do in the LiveLab. We encourage you to leave your ideas or suggestions here. All live streams will include safety notes.

A small sample of potential topics include the following:

Properties and reactions of individual elements, gases, oscillating / clock reactions, thermochemistry, chemical luminescence, transition metals, metal complexes, acids & bases, electrochemistry, colorful reactions, energetic reactions, organic synthesis, properties of cesium, rare oxidation states, making iodine, dyes and pigments, growing crystals, identifying elements with a spectroscope, redox reactions, chemical gardens, liquid metals, noble gases, rare earth elements, isolation of silver / gold, using a chromatograph, advanced in material science, produce proteins from modified bacteria, isolate or clone DNA.
