The template is shown without wiki formatting - so cut from below the line and paste it into your new page and you're ready to create a new guide! You can see how it looks here.

Remember the guide you're writing must have a title as "Scienceshow/Guides/title" by always first starting the new page as a link in the page Scienceshow/Guides.

Wikimedia Commons ScienceShow is where we upload the media files for this book to have an easy overview of available images etc.

==Purpose and Overview==

Make a brief statement about the purpose of this specific guide you're making in this section. Briefly describe what the experiment is about. Which scientific principles does it demonstrate?

Replace the guiding test in the template as your write, but keep the egneral structure and leave the text in empty sections so other contributors will know what it is intended for.

Remember that no copyrighted material can be added to this book without the authors explicit accept and please ackowledge sources of information and ideas with links to websites and references.

Media files should be uploaded on [[commons:scienceshow| Wikimedia Commons ScienceShow]].

*Status for this guide: Finished, Not yet finished, Check recipes...(leave the appropriate)

*Subjects relating to this guide: add appropriate...[[../Nanotechnology/]], [[../Physics/]]



===Safety Class===

Choose a fitting safety class for this description

*'''Too dangerous!''' (We do not make this experiment because …)

*Very dangerous (Should only be attempted after careful training)

*Dangerous - Please be aware of this or the other thing... (Untrained people can do this experiment under supervision and guidance)

*Harmless (The most dangerous thing is this insignificant little petitesse)

===Required Safety Equipment===

*The show performer: Glasses / Lab coat / Nothing / Fire extinguisher / Wet towel and a bucket of water / Eye flushing bottle

*Audience/participants: Safety screens / Hearing protection (a finger in the ear is often a help).


You'll need the following - make a list

* item 1: formula, CAS number, supplier [], Safety issues (describe the most important ones), Storage, link to safety datasheet


*Preparation time

*Performance time

*Clean-up time.

===Step by step===

#Start by…


#End with explaining how to properly get rid of waste products

===Alternative methods===

Other ways to do the experiment


Now the reader knows the experiment, give a closer description of possible dangers.

*Important, be aware of…

*Consider the…

===Other Factors===

What other things can sometimes affect the result of the experiment. Maybe the humidity or cleanliness of the glass ware is an issue.

===Show notes===

What to consider when preparing. How to make it more spectacular. What can be difficult to achieve 'on stage' that normally is easy when practising.

What other experiments are good to that have in relation to this one?

What should you beware of that can make the experiment boring?


===What's taking place===

Here you can give a more quantitative and mathematical description of what happens. What fundamental laws are involved or demonstrated by this experiment etc. Remember to explain jargon/expressions from the laboratory.

===In the real world===

Do you meet things like this in daily life - give examples!

===Unanswered Questions===

Things we do not yet know and should find an answer to - maybe how it actually works etc.

==More Information==

This is just a guide and it can contain both errors and omissions. Always make experiments in small versions before proceeding to larger quantities where things could become dangerous. Ask around if you have any doubts before starting and do not start on a procedure you do not feel you understand and is qualified to perform.
