Description

Join us for our annual Science Spooktacular Halloween Event!

Science Spooktacular is an afternoon of spooky science fun for all ages presented by Science in Action and the Faculty of Science. Come out and see some Creepy Creatures and play with some Halloween-y hands-on science activities on the 3000 level of the Academic Quadrangle.

Halloween costumes are encouraged!

We will present the Phantom Physics and Cryptic Chemistry show twice at 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM in Shrum Science Centre lecture hall B9200.

In addition, this year there will be a glass-blowing workshop, "Hot Glass Cool Science" at 2:00pm in B9201.

Free Admission to the event, but registration is required for the Science Shows as well as the glass-blowing workshop.

Limit of 6 tickets per person for each show. Please do not reserve tickets for both the 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM Phantom Physics and Cryptic Chemistry shows. Duplicate reservations will be removed.

Please note your seats will only be reserved up until 15 minutes before the start of the show. Please ensure you are seated at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the show to keep your place.

Please print your tickets for admission.

FAQs

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Yes. Please print out your ticket to attend the event.


What if we can't get the tickets to one of the shows?

You should come anyway. Due to no-shows, we can usually get everyone into one of the two shows, even if you have not reserved seats ahead of time. There will also be lots of fun spooky science activities to do in the hallways.
