POCATELLO— Additional help is needed to ensure that this year’s 2015 Haunted Science Lab exhibitions put on by Idaho State University’s Department of Physics and the Kiwanis Club are a success.

Volunteers must be over the age of 18, available during public school hours and be without a criminal record.

For the last four years, the ISU Society of Physics Students, the Kiwanis Club of Pocatello, and the ISU Department of Physics have hosted a Haunted Science Laboratory exhibit open to field trips from local schools, free of charge.

Volunteers from ISU and the Kiwanis Club have provided educational, engaging and spooky science fun with interactive science exhibits and activities.

The Kiwanis Club has also reimbursed schools for busing costs. All proceeds from the Saturday event will go to Kiwanis supported charities benefiting southeast Idaho children.

The Haunted Laboratory will include a Van deGraaf generator, lasers moving to music and lots of cool illusions with smoke and mirrors. Several exhibits use the same principles of those of Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion, except that here they are explained.

Setup and preparations for the exhibits will occur Oct. 10 – 18, field trips will be scheduled for Oct. 19 – 23 and the exhibits will be open to the public for a fee on Oct. 24.

To volunteer, donate funds to help defray busing costs or for more information contact Steve Shropshire in the ISU Department of Physics or at
