On Saturday, October 12, as part of the Maryland State STEM Festival, UMD Physics Outreach will present a program on FLIGHT at the John S. Toll Physics Building from 10AM-1PM. Learn the science behind how things fly, experience the famous physics demos, and build your own aircraft!
Dear UMD Physics Faculty: Welcome to Fall 2019! We look forward to assisting you with your demonstration needs this semester and helping you to make your classes exciting and interactive.
As we prepare for the fall semester, please remember we do need adequate time to prepare your demonstrations and ensure there are no conflicts between orders. For morning classes, please have orders in before 1:00 PM of the previous working day; for afternoon classes, before 4:00 AM the day of the class. If your class is outside the John S. Toll Physics Building, please get in touch with us one to two days in advance if possible so we can make arrangements for the materials to be packed so you or your TA can pick them up and return them in PHY0402.
For classes in the lecture halls, the rotating stages may be used during the day to rotate demonstrations in and out of the halls.
We are happy to work with you to ensure that you have everything you need. We're all looking forward to an exciting new semester!

The Lecture Demonstration Facility at the University of Maryland is designed to help faculty spark student interest, identify misconceptions, help students make predictions, facilitate discussion, and reinforce curricular concepts.
We have exciting outreach events in store for this season!
Fall 2019 Special Events
Quantum for Kids: You Got This! is an exciting event dedicated to increasing student's STEM knowledge and confidence though hands-on activities that introduce quantum concepts in a fun and engaging format. Additionally, students will learn to connect real-world technologies to the science behind them. Our program is geared toward upper elementary and middle school students.
Registration is required; watch for registration to open soon at https://umdphysics.umd.edu/events/aboutus-outreach.html
