Idaho State University Haunted Lab open to public Oct. 27

Posted October 18, 2012

Idaho State University will host a Haunted Science Laboratory exhibit on Saturday, Oct.  27, from 3 to 9 p.m. at the old CARQUEST warehouse, 1161 Wilson Ave. in Pocatello, one block west of the Pizza Hut on Yellowstone Ave.

The Haunted Laboratory – hosted by the ISU Society of Physics Students, the Kiwanis Club of Pocatello and the ISU Department of Physics – features interactive exhibits designed to delight, fright, and educate kids of all ages.

Exhibits include a Van deGraaf generator, lasers moving to music, and lots of cool illusions with smoke and mirrors.  Several exhibits use the same principles of those of Disneyland's Haunted Mansion, except that here they are explained.

The exhibits are also open to schools and educational groups by appointment Wednesday, Oct. 24, through Friday, Oct. 26.

 The entrance fee on Saturday will be $3 per person, or $7 per family (limit 6). All proceeds will go to Kiwanis supported charities benefiting southeast Idaho Children.

 For more information about the exhibit or to schedule a school field trip, contact Dr. Steve Shropshire in the ISU Department of Physics at shrostev@isu.edu or 282-2212.
