explosive pumpkin demonstration, and supernatural slime to make; be prepared for some messy, spooky and yucky fun! Of course, we would love to see all participants come out in their spooky costumes.

Spooky Science Weekend is organized each year by science graduate and undergraduate students at the University of Lethbridge who volunteer for the national Let’s Talk Science Outreach program. It is their goal to share their passion for science with children of all ages, to increase the public accessibility of science and to inspire students to pursue careers in science.

The activities for the event have been designed by graduate student volunteers between several different science disciplines. Overall, more than 20 graduate and undergraduate student volunteers will assist during the day to make it a fun and inspiring experience for everyone involved.
