Little Shop of Physics Spring Science Extravaganza


Location: On-campus

Event/Activity Description

Come on out for a day of free, outdoor science fun! This event is appropriate for all ages and will feature some of our favorite interactive science experiments, demos, and presentations that are too big or messy to do indoors, and some of our science partners from around CSU and beyond.

About Little Shop of Physics: 

The Little Shop of Physics has always been a hands-on program, something that sets it apart from other science outreach programs. Students are the scientists in the Little Shop of Physics. But we don’t just teach science, we teach that science is something anyone can do, that it is a field that is interesting and accessible to anyone. We believe—and we demonstrate—that anyone, of any age, can understand science at some level. Our expertise in developing such lessons allows us to provide teachers of any grade level tools that they can use to incorporate science into their curriculum inexpensively and effectively. Currently, we share these ideas in workshops with over 300 teachers each year.
