chemistryUnderwater fireworks and levitating aluminum boats are just some of the amazing experiments that will be performed at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Chemistry Demo.

The event, open to the public, is at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 22 in Upham Hall room 145.

"We're going to blow stuff up," said Katelyn Dudley, president of UW-Whitewater's Chemistry Club. "Even if you don't understand chemistry, this will be a fun and entertaining experience. You'll definitely learn something."

Chemistry Club students will perform the experiments, along with assistant professor John Ejnik.

"We're going to talk about the core concepts of science in a way that everybody can understand," Ejnik said. "You'll see dramatic reactions."

Admission is $3 for adults, $2 for students and free for children.
