What:  UNI Chemistry & Biochemistry Halloween House
Where:  UNI McCollum Science Hall;  1227 W 27th Street, Cedar Falls, Iowa
When:  Friday, 10-28-16 from 4:30-7:30 PM

G-R Families:  If you’re looking for a fun activity to do with your kids this month, you might want to check out the UNI Chemistry and Biochemistry Halloween House on FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2016 (see flyer attached).  The UNI staff and students plan LOTS of amazing science experiments for the kids and perform them as scheduled shows in the UNI labs and classrooms.

As an example, a few years ago the UNI students created a pirate ship skit where they made water boil with no heat, turned a penny into "gold" and set a $1.00 bill on fire without causing any damage to it.  In another room they shot off fire balls inside a jack-o-lantern, held fire in their hands...etc.  In another lab, the kids had hands-on projects where they could mix ingredients to make fake poop, fake wounds they could stick on their arms, they made fake snot and brains in a bag...you get the picture.  They change the program every year, but it's always fun and amazing and the UNI staff & students explain the science behind all the "magic".

It's a great opportunity to have Elementary students see college level labs and watch amazing science in a fun and safe environment.  The college students and professors set everything up and dress in costume for their performances.  Fun for the kids and grown-ups!

One piece of advice:  GO EARLY so you can attend all the "shows"!  The event is free and open to the public.  It is worth the drive to Cedar Falls!
