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.

“The Haunted Lab is a unique event that the whole family can attend,” said Dr. Evonne Baldauff, associate professor of chemistry and chair of the Department of Chemistry and Forensic Science. “Participants get to interact with our undergraduate science majors to witness interesting demonstrations and fun hands-on activities. We hope that the experience gets kids excited and shows them that science is something they might one day want to study in college.”

The event is designed to promote science education by showcasing fun and exciting demonstrations and hands-on activities.
