Professor Horgen's experiment featured hydrogen gas contained in a balloon, oxygen, and an ignition source, resulting in a mesmerizing combustion in mid-air.
The event's grand finale was a jaw-dropping science demonstration by HPU Professor David Horgen, Ph.D. Horgen's experiment featured hydrogen gas contained in a balloon, oxygen, and an ignition source, resulting in a mesmerizing combustion in mid-air. The students were left in awe, applauding the magic of science.
But the excitement didn't stop there. Horgen also wowed the audience by using methanol gas, oxygen, and a simple spark to launch a bottle high into the sky, akin to a rocket. This thrilling experiment showcased the power of science and left students with a newfound appreciation for chemistry.
The STEM welcome back event was a hit, reigniting curiosity and passion for STEM fields. As students start their journey, they carry the memory of an evening where science came to life, thanks to the amazing faculty and staff that will pave the way for their future endeavors.
