"Boom in the Night" event coming up at Misericordia University

DALLAS, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU)- Science is taking the spotlight this weekend at Misericordia University, as students will show you what goes "boom in the night."

On October 28, you're invited to attend a program designed to showcase some spooky science experiments.

University students will give kids a hands-on lesson about how to make slime, snow, a vomiting pumpkin, and so much more. They'll also demonstrate some more advance experiments, like the death of a gummy bear, and explain the science behind the fun.

The goal is to inspire a new generation of scientists.

"A lot of the students get a lot of hands-on experience working with the children and learning the experiments," says Dr. Anna Fedor, assistant professor. "It's not only for the kids, it's for the students in our program."

"Chemistry is one of the least represented majors, so it's nice to have the kids come out, see the cool stuff. and maybe become interested, and maybe become a chemistry major," says student Lenny Watson Jr.

The event is free and open to the public. The hair-raising fun kicks off at 5:00 Saturday evening inside the Wells Fargo Ampitheater.
