October 14, 2011 – King’s Chemistry Club students, with College faculty supervision, will present a traditional ghoulish exhibition of chemical delights in commemoration of National Chemistry Week and Halloween with the 15th Annual “Things that Go Boom in the Night” at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 26, in the Burke Auditorium, William G. McGowan School of Business, located on North River Street.

More than a dozen chemistry students will be performing fiery demonstrations, including balloon explosions and a flaming pumpkin finale. They will also be freezing objects with liquid nitrogen, performing some color change reactions, and making slime.

The presentation is designed for a young audience; children 12 and younger are invited to attend with no more than two adults.  Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.  No tickets are required. For more information, contact Dr. Kristi Concannon, associate professor of physics, at 208-5900, ext. 5390.
