UNI to host 'Halloween House' for children and their families
The UNI Student Chapter of the American Chemical Society (ACS), in collaboration with the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and physics, science, education and earth and environmental sciences students, will be hosting a “Halloween House” from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 28 on the second floor of McCollum Science Hall.
The event is free and open to the public. The activities are intended for elementary age children, but can be enjoyed by children of all ages. Costumes are encouraged.
UNI students will be performing Halloween-themed science demonstrations and supervising hands-on activities in rooms such as the “Devil’s Den,” “Tesla’s Revenge” and “Land Before Time.”
“Halloween House” is a program of the American Chemical Society student chapter designed to reach the public with a positive message about chemistry. With the inclusion of additional student organizations this event has grown to encompass an exciting range of STEM activities.
Halloween House is organized by the following UNI science clubs:
- UNI Student Chapter of the American Chemical Society
- UNI Physics Club
- Gamma Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Epsilon Earth Science Honor Society
- UNI Student Chapter of the National Science Teachers Association
In addition to the “Halloween House” activities, the UNI Botanical Center, located just to the west of McCollum Science Hall, will also be hosting Halloween-themed activities from 4:30 to 8:00 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 28.
