Watch the skies above Missouri University of Science and Technology in June for two student-produced fireworks displays.

The public is welcome to visit the campus and watch the displays, which will begin at approximately 8:50 p.m. Friday, June 17, and Friday, June 24, in Parking Area M Lot 36, located west of the Engineering Research Laboratory (ERL), off of St. Patrick’s Lane.

Fireworks will be visible from most locations near campus. One of the best views will be in the open area south of Lot M, between McNutt Hall, the Engineering Management Building and the Computer Science Building. Parking will not be available in Lot M.

The displays are part of Missouri S&T’s Explosives Camp for high school juniors and seniors. Dr. Paul Worsey, professor of mining and nuclear engineering and director of explosives education at S&T, will supervise the displays.

The summer camp program features a variety of lectures, demonstrations and field trips. Campers learn to safely handle and detonate explosives, while learning about detonators, high explosives, blasting agents and rock blasting. They also get a behind-the-scenes look at how explosives are used in industry and in entertainment. Each camp session culminates in a fireworks display.

The parking area will be closed to incoming traffic at 4:30 p.m. on these dates for the displays. All vehicles must be moved by 5:30 p.m. Vehicles left in the lot will be towed at the owner’s expense.
