Nov 16, 2011

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

"The Science of Wizardry"

It will be held on Thursday evening, December 1st, at 6:30 PM in Currens Hall, Room 205

The Physics and Chemistry departments at Western Illinois University proudly announce that we will be holding our Annual Science Demonstration Show this year on December 1st, 2011 in WIU's Currens Hall, Room 205, beginning at 6:30 PM. The show will be called "The Science of Wizardry, " in honor of the Harry Potter book and movie series. We hope to have a great time exploring the science behind real magical spells! We are also encouraging everyone who comes to join in the fun and dress as his or her favorite Harry Potter character!

The theme of our show is modern magic. Who doesn't want to have the power to levitate, to fly through the air, to make things come, etc., at a simple command? Would it surprise you to know that we can do these things already through the mastery of understanding nature's physical laws? We hope that our show convinces you and your friends of the power that is already at our finger tips when we understand the way this world works through scientific investigation.

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.

Contact Dr. Jim Rabchuk, 298-2577, for further information.
