The Adams State University Chemistry Department invites everyone to the 25th annual Chemistry Show, "Solving Mysteries Using Chemistry" at 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4, in Carson Auditorium, located in the Student Union Building. The event is free and open to the public.

The magic show is a very fun presentation for people of all ages. Continuing a very old tradition, the chemistry students and faculty will engage the audience in a fast-paced series of demonstrations involving changing colors, very high and very low temperatures, bright lights and loud noises, all illustrating the entertaining side of science.

After the show, elementary school children can participate in safe and fun hands-on activities in Porter Hall, third floor. Activities are free of charge. Younger children should be accompanied by supervising adults.

Although seating should be plentiful, larger groups are asked to notify Dr. Christy Miller, professor of chemistry and department chair, at 719-587-7506. The parking lot north of the Student Union Building has free two hour parking for visitors.
