Idaho State University physics, Pocatello Kiwanis to host a Haunted Science Lab Oct. 24; open to school groups Oct. 19-23

POCATELLO — The Idaho State University Society of Physics Students, the Kiwanis Club of Pocatello and the ISU Department of Physics will host a Haunted Science Laboratory exhibit open to the public on Oct. 24 3-9 p.m. at the old Car Quest Warehouse, 1161 Wilson Ave. in Pocatello.

The Haunted Laboratory features interactive exhibits designed to delight, fright and educate kids of all ages. Exhibits include a Van deGraaf generator, lasers moving to music and lots of cool illusions with smoke and mirrors.

Several exhibits use the same principles of those of Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion. The exhibits are also open to schools and educational groups at no charge by appointment Oct. 19 through Oct. 23.

The entrance fee on Saturday, Oct. 24, will be $3 per person, or $7 per family (limit six). All proceeds will go to Kiwanis-supported charities benefiting Southeast Idaho children.

For more information about the exhibit, to donate funds to help schools with busing costs, or to schedule a school field trip, contact Steve Shropshire in the ISU Department of Physics at shrostev@isu.edu or 282-2212.
