Chem BlastChem BlastOn Thursday, March 19, a great crowd joined the NIU Chemistry Club for an evening of Chem Blast '09. "Demonstrations in the past have always involved small explosions," says Prof. David Ballantine, faculty adviser of the Chem Club. "So, we've decided to take on the new title of Chem Blast for our spring event."

"Every semester we try to out-do the previous semester's excitement," says Harrison Kuras, a junior chemistry education major. "Whether it be Thermite and contact explosives or chemical slime and expanding foam, there's always a demo here that turns heads."
