As part of the World Year of Physics outreach effort organized by APS, 20 'physics on the road' teams are traveling the country supported by funds from NSF, DOE and NIST, bringing physics to the public arena.

The event was organized by the 'Orange Physics' team from the physics department at Syracuse University.
