Science is about to go horribly wrong at the Canada Science and Technology Museum

OTTAWA, October 25, 2012 – The Countdown to Halloween has begun, and the mad scientists at the Canada Science and Technology Museum are brewing up a spooky program for visitors.

In the Kitchen Lab, some frightening experiments will be taking place. Come and witness fascinating magic feats at the Science of illusion demonstration.
