Exploding hydrogen balloons, a man lying on a bed of nails, and shattering fruits and flowers are some of the sights to be seen at the 15th Annual Faraday Christmas Children’s Lecture at Rutgers University.
Presented by the Rutgers Department of Physics and Astronomy, this free show is a family-friendly demonstration of science experiments with dazzling results.
Three performances are scheduled for Friday, Dec. 7, Saturday, Dec. 8 and Sunday, Dec. 9 at the Busch Campus physics lecture hall, 120 Frelinghuysen Road, Piscataway.
All performances begin at 7 p.m. and are approximately an hour and a half long. Early arrival is suggested to ensure a seat in the lecture hall, and overflow seating will be offered in an adjacent classroom, where the lecture will be broadcast on a television screen.
The performance is presented by physics professor Mark Croft and physics support specialist Dave Maiullo.
