CF Market Mall and the Faculty of Science have teamed up to create a Spooky Science Halloween for families this weekend.

Young and old can tap into their inner Einstein-Frankenstein on Saturday, Oct. 31 through hands-on activities and chemistry demos. Curious about how things work? Volunteers will be available to answer questions about science — the spooky type or any other.

Ashley Causton leads community outreach activities for the Department of Chemistry. He says collaborative events with community partners like CF Market Mall make science fun and accessible.

“It’s great to see people of all ages surprised and delighted by the experiments and demonstrations,” says the senior chemistry instructor. “We are really looking forward to having conversations around the simple experiments and how the science behind them relates to our daily lives.”

Families will be treated to science in action on the grandstand at Bay Court where chemists will be concocting special demonstrations and experiments.

At pop-up laboratories throughout the mall, children can take part in intriguing interactive Halloween activities, like making slime and ectoplasm, watching a glass-blowing demonstration or seeing what happens in Frankenstein’s Electric Lab.

“We are happy to partner with the Faculty of Science on this fun family experience,” says Alexandra Velosa, marketing manager, CF Market Mall. “This partnership provides an unusual and unique experience for our shoppers when they come to CF Market Mall for Halloween.”

So, grab your big and little monsters, superheroes and witches and check out Spooky Science from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
