Physics Spooky Night!

Date: October 31, 2014 Time: 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Event Description Join the boos and ghouls from the Department of Physics and Astronomy in Lewis Hall for our annual Spooky Physics Night! Bring your kids and friends to learn about energy, electricity, magnetism, sound and waves, the physics of ultracold temperatures and more. But beware! Expect a hair-raising experience — literally: we’lll shoot enough electricity through your body to make your hair stand up — and other ?nefarious? experiments involving a bed of nails, lasers, superconductors and electromagnets. All harmless activities, of course! The night will also include food and fun, a Halloween costume contest for children, and liquid nitrogen ice cream for everybody, ?freshly? made at -320 F degrees. Due to pre-game activities, Spooky Physics Night visitors will be allowed to park in areas off All American Drive in connection with Lewis Hall until the event is over but not on The Circle.
