Spooky Physics Night 2023

Invitation: The annual Halloween-themed open house at the Department of Physics and Astronomy.


Bring your kids and friends to learn about energy, electricity, magnetism, sound and waves, the physics of ultracold temperatures and more. But beware! Expect a hair-raising experience -- literally: we'll shoot enough electricity through your body to make your hair stand up -- and other ‘nefarious’ experiments involving a bed of nails, lasers, superconductors and electromagnets. All harmless activities, of course! The night will also include food and fun, a Halloween costume contest for children, and liquid nitrogen ice cream for everybody, ‘freshly’ made at -320 F degrees.

Spooky Physics Night visitors may park in the University Circle, surrounding areas alongside or behind Turner Complex and the Intensive English building (just west of Turner), in the Pavilion garage or in the Tad Smith coliseum parking lot.
