BOZEMAN – Children and their families are invited to attend “Frankenscience,” a Halloween-inspired event that will include scientific demonstrations of exploding pumpkins, liquid nitrogen ice cream, morphing orange juice and much more.

The free event will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 27, on the second floor of Gaines Hall at Montana State University.

Sponsored by MSU’s Undergraduate Chemistry Society, Frankenscience will offer safe demonstrations of “wonderful color and amazing science,” according to organizers. Attendees can eat liquid nitrogen ice cream, make slime, and watch orange juice turn into strawberry floats. They can watch ghosts and goblins, eerie lights and reappearing pumpkins. They can collect candy and are encouraged to wear costumes.

All activities will be supervised by trained chemists. Tour guides will lead everyone through the demonstrations.

Gaines Hall is located along Grant Street, across from the Marga Hosaeus Fitness Center and between Romney Gym and the Visual Communications Building.
