Physics is Phun 2014-2015

Since its inception in 1982, The University of Maryland Physics Department has presented a yearly series of free public lecture-demonstration programs affectionately known as Physics is Phun. The program is hosted by the staff of the Physics Lecture Demonstrations Facility and made possible with the assistance of numerous invaluable volunteers. These shows aim to educate and entertain the public through the use of both interactive and faculty-led demonstrations. It is geared toward a high-school level audience. For younger students, we also offer Physics Discovery Days.
