Museum Focuses on "Crazy Chemistry"
Posted January 2, 1999
DURHAM — Who says chemistry can't be fun? Certainly not the folks at the North Carolina Museum of Life and Science.
Saturday was "Crazy Chemistry" day at the museum. Exploding balloons were part of the interactive program that gives visitors the opportunity to experience the exhibits.
"Most people don't learn about blowing up gasses, creating loud noises, things that aren't safe to do without proper supervision," said museum director Tom Krackauer, "but it makes for a very good dramatic demonstration."
The demonstrations were part of a series of public programs offered by the museum.
