Physics and Chemistry Demonstration Show on December 2nd, 2010

Nov 19, 2010

WIU's departments of Physics and Chemistry are proud to present our annual science demonstration show!

"Laser Avengers: The Science of Iron Man II"

It will be held on Thursday evening, December 2nd, at 6:30 PM in Currens
Hall, Room 205

Starting from 6:30 we, the students and faculty of our departments, will present science demonstrations related to the theme of "Laser Avengers" focusing on the Science of Iron Man II, and in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the invention of the LASER. The movie Iron Man is largely a nod to the amazing power modern technology has given to mankind. We will endeavor through our show to reveal some of the secrets behind the power of modern technology.

In particular, we will explore the science of atoms, electricity, magnetism, sound, light and energy. Special "crispy" treats provided at the end of the show! Commemorative T-shirts will be available for sale!

The demonstration show is expected to last about 1 to 1.5 hours.
