Published: November 9, 2017.

Have you ever wondered if the cool science you see in movies is even possible? The Lewis University Electrochemical Society is hosting the “Science in Cinema” event from 9:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday, November 18 in the Science Center on the main campus in Romeoville. The event is free and open to the public.

“Science in Cinema” will show a small movie clip from such movies as “Back to the Future,” “Twister,” “Mission: Impossible” and “Flubber,” followed by a relevant science project. There will be four 25-minute rotations where the films will be viewed followed by the correlated activity:
• “Flubber” - Creating your own homemade slime
• “Back to the Future” - Experiments revolving around electricity
• “Twister” - Experiments related to weather
• “Mission Impossible” - Students will try to successfully work their way through a laser maze

Additionally, the Lewis University Electrochemical Society will be accepting canned, non-perishable goods to donate to hurricane victims. Email for further information.
