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 Feb. 24, for students in grades 3-6, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Minot State University faculty and students will explain and demonstrate current science research projects and perform chemistry “magic shows” on each hour, starting at 9 a.m.

As a special treat for the public, the Division of Science will host a chemistry magic show at 3 p.m. in Hoffman Auditorium. Faculty and students will perform experiments developed by MSU classes that include things parents warned their children to never do — play with dangerous chemicals, fire and explosions.

“When we perform these demonstrations, we generally warn people these are not safe,” said Guy Hanley, assistant professor of science and curator of collections.

The public chemistry magic show starts promptly at 3 p.m. and lasts 40 minutes. For questions, contact Hanley at
