Event/Activity Description

The Little Shop of Physics is a traveling hands-on science education outreach program at Colorado State University that presents school programs and teacher workshops in Colorado, neighboring states, and around the world. The Little Shop team makes science accessible to all students by building experiment stations from everyday objects that actively engage students in learning fundamental scientific concepts. The central message of the Little Shop is that science is something anyone can do. Little Shop of Physics programming gets kids engaged in science, includes families in the process of learning, inspires future teachers, and shows educators how to better teach science. Each year, the Little Shop team delivers their programming to 30+ schools and 20,000 K-12 students, exposing them to science but also STEM career paths and opportunities.
