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. In addition to classroom integration, the Lecture Demonstration Facility is home to public outreach programs and partnerships. The most famous of these, Physics is Phun, has a long history of making physics accessible to the community.

We are proud to support the Physics Department, the College of Mathematical and Natural Sciences, and the University of Maryland community in a wide variety of teaching and outreach efforts.
