Middlebury College to Hold Halloween Open House at Bicentennial Hall on Oct. 31

Middlebury College will hold a Halloween open house at Bicentennial Hall, the College's new science facility, from 2-4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 31. The event will include guided tours of the building by science students and faculty. Free and open to the public, cider, doughnuts, and cookies will be served. Trick-or-treat bags for children of all ages will also be available.

During the open house, visitors may view a student research poster display in the Great Hall. Students majoring in the sciences created the posters, which describe research projects they undertook this past summer. These students will be present during the display to discuss their research topics, which range from mobile robot navigation to the genetic structure of microorganisms that create dental cavities. Most of the projects are funded by a major institutional grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

Bicentennial Hall is on Bicentennial Way, off College Street (Route 125). Contact the public affairs office at 802-443-5198 for more information.
