Waynesburg University’s American Chemical Society (ACS) student chapter will host its annual Haunted Lab event Thursday, Oct. 27, from 6 to 8 p.m. on the fifth floor of Stewart Science Hall on Waynesburg University’s campus.
The walk-through event is open to the public and will showcase over 20 interactive demonstrations and activities geared toward a K-12 audience, though undergraduates are also welcome to attend.
“Haunted Lab brings professors and ACS students together to work on one large, unique event that can benefit the community,” said Kristen Wilson, senior chemistry major and president of the ACS student chapter. “The attendees walk through our labs, which will be decorated for Halloween, to experience fun, but ‘spooky’ demonstrations that show them that science can be fun, interactive and exciting.”
The event is designed to promote science education by showcasing fun and exciting demonstrations and hands-on activities.
“We get the opportunity to share our love of chemistry and science through an event that promotes Waynesburg University, science and community interaction through service,” said Wilson.
For more information, contact Dr. Evonne Balduaff, associate professor of chemistry and chair of the Department of Chemistry and Forensic Science, at 724-852-7617 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
