Physics on the Road

teapotAn audience volunteer is lifted from the floor by an inflating balloon at the Conference for Physics on the Road held at Colorado State University in February. About fifty different universities sent representatives to share their experiences in taking physics on the road by bringing demonstrations and hands-on experiments into the schools. A highlight of the meeting was the open house for “Little Shop of Physics” hosted by Brian Jones of CSU, featuring about 300 exhibits and demonstrations. The Conference was sponsored by the APS, the AAPT, and the APS Forum on Education.
