Looking for a ghoul time this weekend? Earthly ghosts and goblins of all ages will have the chance to learn about the science behind optical, electrical and mechanical phenomena and illusions during the Annual Haunted Physics Lab at Creighton University.
The free event, sponsored by Creighton’s Physics Club, provides hands-on activities in which participants will confront optical, electrical and mechanical phenomena and even have an opportunity to create laser light shows. The haunted laboratory includes 30 interactive exhibits, ranging from a vampire in “Dracula’s Tomb” to a chamber with a body-less “Physics Department Head.”
The annual Haunted Physics Lab, originated by physics professor emeritus Tom Zepf, Ph.D., is free and open to the public from 4:30 to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 27 and 28, and from 5 to 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 29 and 30. It is located on the lower level of the Rigge Science Building in room G19.
Participants can access the haunted laboratory by entering the east doors of the Hixson-Lied Science Building, located at approximately 26th and Burt streets on the Creighton campus.
Free parking is available just north of Burt Street with entry on Cuming Street.
