Science Open House will captivate audiences of all ages

The Cyril Moore Science Center and the undergraduate student clubs, Beta Gamma Science Club, Club Biology and AUGITE, are hosting an open house Feb. 23 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 science activities on all three floors of the Cyril Moore Science Center. They will also 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 warn their children to never do — play with dangerous chemicals, fire and explosions.

“We perform many chemistry demonstrations that are not safe to attempt at home, however, we will also demonstrate some activities that can be done safely at home with adult supervision,” 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
