Annual Halloween Physics Demo Show

Every year, the IPFW physics department hosts a Halloween-themed demo show. Audience members of all ages experience spooky hands-on physics demonstrations and watch a show. Students from the physics department put on the performance, with frightening demonstrations, including the “nose cruncher” and “bed of nails,” where a student will lie down on a bed of nails, have a concrete block placed on top of them, then another student will break that block with a sledgehammer!

This year, the Indiana-Purdue Student Government Association covered highlights of the event (see video).

Physics is always hosting events, from demo shows to star parties, and more. If you want more info, check out our previous article on physics department events or contact the department.
