Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.

“The Haunted Lab is one of our organization’s favorite events of the year,” said Evonne Baldauff, assistant professor of chemistry and chair of the Chemistry and Forensic Science Department. “By witnessing more than twenty-five ‘mysterious’ demonstrations and hands-on activities, participants of all ages will experience the true excitement of science.”

Designed to promote science education by showcasing fun and exciting demonstrations, all ages can benefit from this event. Participants will be guided throughout the experiment and activity stations run by University students and faculty members on the third floor of Stewart Science Hall. It will take approximately 30 to 45 minutes to walk through the Haunted Lab.

This year’s activity stations include boogie monster’s toothpaste, glowing worms, spooky slime and the fire rainbow.
