NIU Chem Club to demonstrate ‘magic of chemistry’ April 15

Chem DemoAll ages are welcome to attend the FREE annual Chem Demo Night, scheduled for 8 p.m. Friday, April 15, in the Carl Sandburg Auditorium of the Holmes Student Center.

Hosted by the NIU Chem Club, the theme of the night will be “The Magic of Chemistry.”

The evening conjures up experiments that feature some exciting parts of chemistry – from rapid phase change manipulations to “magically” timed reaction kinetics to luminescence generation. It will include loud bangs; bright flashes of light, fire and heat; and intermittent periods of low light and/or darkness.

At the conclusion of the event, the Chem Club will make liquid nitrogen ice cream for everyone to enjoy.

Doors open for the event at 7 p.m. Free parking will be available, beginning at 7 p.m. in NIU’s Parking Garage (non‐reserved spots) along the west side of Normal Road across from La Tourette Hall, about one block north of Lincoln Highway (Route 38).

This is “definitely an event worth coming out for,” says Jon Carnahan, chair of the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department. “This is a great opportunity to see some of our best and brightest students put on an engaging show in our community.”
