    School Visits

    The Little Shop of Physics is a travelling hands-on science program. Central to our mission is our school visits. Every year, we take over 100 experiments on the road and visit schools throughout Colorado and the rest of the US. Last year we traveled to over 25 schools saw over 25,000 students of all ages!

    Road Trips

    Several time a year, Little Shop of Physics partners with the Native American Cultural Center and takes the show on the road to Native American Reservations and other underserved areas. In addition to our hands-on science experiments, we conduct workshops for teachers and give science presents to every student we see. Recently, we have visited the Pine Ridge, Wind River, Navajo and Southern Ute, Zuni and Fort Berthold Reservations.

    Teacher Workshops

    Each year, we develop new lessons that teachers can put to work in their classrooms. Little Shop of Physics lessons make science hands-on, exciting and engaging. Each year we share these lessons with over teachers in Colorado, neighboring states, and even other countries.
