Fun With Physics

If people can't come to a physics demonstration, the physics demonstration will come to the people. That is what this group of students and instructors did. In an effort to make physics fun and accessible, they visited parks in the city and brought several fun physics demonstration.

Inner-city students were getting a sampling of science with their lunch, thanks to an outreach program from the Ott Planetarium and several science departments at Weber State University. A group of WSU students, accompanied by physics associate professor Adam Johnstun, has visited parks that serve free lunch in the Ogden School District for the last two weeks to give youngsters hands-on experience with science.

Great job to those involved. There can never be too many of this type of effort.
