    Spooky Science Night

    6:00 pmLewis Hall

    Frights and fun are the order of the evening when the University of Mississippi Department of Physics and Astronomy presents "Spooky Physics Demonstrations" from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, October 30th.

    While we cannot invite everyone into the Department of Physics and Astronomy, we will still be bringing you the Spooky Physics Night! Amazing, hilarious, and spooktacular demonstrations will be broadcast right into your home! Tune in for a family friendly show to learn about energy, electricity, magnetism, sound and waves, the physics of ultra-cold temperatures and more. But beware! Expect a hair-raising experience -- literally: we'll shoot enough electricity through our victims... I mean volunteers... to make their hair stand up -- and other ‘nefarious’ experiments involving a bed of nails, lasers, superconductors and electromagnets. All harmless activities, of course!
