Physics concepts are scary enough on their own, but combined with skeletons, ghosts and ghoulish creatures, they can be downright terrifying.

That was the idea behind the New Trier science department’s Haunted Lab exhibit, on display at the school’s Brierly Gallery from Oct. 27-31. 

The Haunted Lab presented physics concepts, such as light reflection, periodic motion and sound waves, but in an interactive format.
