Oct. 16, 2015 - King’s College Chemistry Club will present a traditional ghoulish exhibition of chemical delights in commemoration of National Chemistry Week and Halloween with the 19th Annual “Things that Go Boom in the Night” at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 27, in the Burke Auditorium, William G. McGowan School of Business, located on North River Street.

Chemistry students and faculty will be performing more than a dozen experiments including freezing objects with liquid nitrogen, performing color change reactions, making slime, and exploding balloons.  The 90-minute show will conclude with a flaming pumpkin finale.

The presentation is designed for a young audience; children 12 and younger are invited to attend with no more than two adults. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors open at 6:45 p.m. 

Since the event is first-come, first-served, no tickets are needed for admission. For more information, contact Dr. Julie Belanger, assistant professor of chemistry, at 208-5900, ext. 5627, or Dr. Gerardo Giordano, assistant professor of physics, at (570) 208-5900, ext. 5260.

Dr. Trent Snider, associate professor of chemistry, supervises King’s student Varvara Budetti as she performs the “The Inflammable Hanky” trick as part of King’s annual children’s Halloween exhibition, "Things That Go Boom in the Night."
