Physics Festival - March 26, 2011

The Physics Festival is an annual event for K-12 featuring hands-on science activities. Faculty members, students, researchers and staff members from the Department of Physics and Astronomy run over 80 interactive demonstrations and exhibits for people of all ages. This year's event will include public lectures by renowned scientist John Junkins and NASA astronaut Richard Linnehan, a Q&A session with NASA astronaut Charles Camarda, Bubble Shows by Keith Johnson, and additional exhibits from the Departments of Aerospace Engineering, Chemistry, and Mathematics.

Physics Shows

As a part of our outreach program, the Department of Physics and Astronomy offers the Physics Show for schools in the Brazos Valley. Our faculty and students are happy to share the excitement of physics experiments with children of all ages, from elementary to high school. The Physics Show is an entertaining and educational presentation which includes a flexible set of demonstrations and hands-on activities which can be adjusted to any level of audience. The show is accompanied by a power point presentation explaining relevant physics concepts.
