The spooky side of science

The countdown was on for trick-or-treaters to take over the streets, but there was still time to squeeze in some last-minute Halloween entertainment yesterday.

The countdown was on for trick-or-treaters to take over the streets, but there was still time to squeeze in some last-minute Halloween entertainment yesterday.

Lucas Nelson, 6, and his younger brother enjoyed Dr. Agar’s Science Spooktacular at the Telus World of Science yesterday.

He described his favourite experiment: “I liked when there was two colours and they mixed one together to make fire, and then they changed the colour,” he said.

Complete with singing, volunteer judges from the audience and a number of exciting demonstrations, the show is a way to make science fun for kids, says Matthew Green, who played Dr. Agar.

“One of the best parts of the show is getting the audience involved with the show,” said Green.

“You know they like it if they take part as well.”

The experiments ranged from static electricity to fiery lava, but it was the Ruben’s tube, which visually shows sound waves using flames, that was the favourite of many in the audience.

This year marks the fifth anniversary of the show, and the characters are planning to return once again next Halloween for more spooks and science.
