October 8, 2018 - King’s College’s Chemistry and Physics Departments will present a traditional ghoulish exhibition of chemical delights in commemoration of National Chemistry Week and Halloween with the 22nd Annual “Things that Go Boom in the Night” at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 30, 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.
