On Saturday, October 26, 2013 there will be a free afternoon of spooky science fun for kids in grades K-6 and their families 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 in the south concourse of the Academic Quadrangle, just outside Shrum Science Centre lecture hall B9200. We will present the Phantom Physics and Cryptic Chemistry show twice at 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM.


Show ticket reservations are now closed, but a small number of tickets (~30 per show) will be available on the day of the Spooktacular on a first-come, first-serve basis starting at 12 noon. At 10 minutes before show time all the remaining seats in the theatre will be filled.
