MSU science open house will captivate audiences of all ages
The Cyril Moore Science Center and AUGITE, the geology student club, are hosting an open house for students in grades 3 through 6, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 5. Minot State University faculty and students will explain and demonstrate current science research projects and perform chemistry "magic shows" on the hour.
As a special treat for adults on and off campus, the Division of Science will host a chemistry magic show at 3 p.m. in Hoffman Auditorium, room 16 of Cyril Moore Science Center. Faculty and students will demonstrate and perform experiments developed by MSU classes that include the types of things our parents warned us to never do - play with dangerous chemicals, fire and explosions.
"When we perform these demonstrations, we generally warn people these are not safe to do at home," said Guy Hanley, assistant professor and event coordinator.
The event starts promptly at 3 p.m. and lasts approximately forty minutes. It is free and open to the public.
