WIU's Departments of Physics and Chemistry Annual Science Demonstration Show
"Science: The Final Frontier"
The theme of our show was based on the hopeful and sometimes fanciful way that the Star Trek series envisioned our future science and society. One highlight of the show was a special presentation on NASA's search for habitable planets in our "galactic neighborhood." We also presented demonstrations related to gravity, space, the chemistry of life, light, and the limits of hot and cold.
