King’s College Chemistry Club will present a traditional ghoulish exhibition of chemical delights in commemoration of National Chemistry Week and Halloween with the 16th Annual “Things that Go Boom in the Night” at 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 12, 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 is available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Doors open at 6:45pm.  No tickets are required. For more information, contact Dr. Kristi Concannon, associate professor of physics, at 208-5900, ext. 5390.
