Share the wonders of physics

Physicists To-Go introduces students, from kindergarten through college undergraduates, to the many opportunities they can explore through physics.

Physicists To-Go matches your classroom with a scientist who will make a live, virtual visit to your classroom to share their curiosity about the natural world and their passion for science. Matches are based on your class's level, interests, and other classroom needs.

Applications to request a visit open every fall. Sign up to learn more and

The scientist shared with students that when he was their grade, he was not great at physics, but over time, he became better. Talking to him was a privilege for my students. - Pooja Gupta, teacher

Quantum physics classroom visits

Part of Physicists To-Go, the Quantum To-Go program matches quantum science professionals with educators seeking to introduce students the concepts and opportunities in quantum science and technology. Teachers can request a quantum professional to visit for biology, chemistry, physics, computer science, engineering, and more.

World Quantum Day

Quantum To-Go classroom visits for 2024 were held on April 24, World Quantum Day.
