MADISON - Chemist and stage master Bassam Shakhashiri will present "Science and Fireworks: Sights and Sounds for Independence Day," on the Memorial Union Terrace July 4.

Shakhashiri, a UW-Madison professor of chemistry, has entertained and enlightened the public for decades at standing-room-only demonstrations. He will be joined by Rodney Schreiner of the chemistry department and Mike Leckrone with members of the UW Band.

The event will begin at 8:15 p.m. and last for one hour.

Tickets are not required, says Shakhashiri. "Independence Day is a great American tradition, but it's also a great way to deliver some fascinating science. Science, fun and fireworks are a great combination!"
