The Little Shop of Physics represented the College of Natural Sciences in the 2018 Colorado State University Homecoming Parade!
Super Science Saturday is an annual free public event at the UCAR Mesa Lab in Boulder. We are excited to take part in it and spend a Saturday doing science science with some awesome kids (and adults)!
The Little Shop of Physics has been part of the annual AISES (American Indian Science and Engineering Society) pow wow for a decade, and it’s one of the highlights of our year. We are honored to be asked to take part, and pleased to be able to provide an interactive science exploration component for the families and children taking part in the powwow. It’s a good chance for us to partner with our colleagues in the Native American Cultural Center, a wonderful opportunity to support this amazing event, and it provides a chance for the kids taking part in the powwow to get up, get moving, and do a bit of science exploration.

The Little Shop of Physics kicked off the tour with our annual tradition of setting up some of our favorite hands-on science experiments at the Kids Music Adventure, part of Bohemian Nights at New West Fest.
This week, we have a special video from our visiting science teacher Chris Chiaverina. Chris shows us how a microphone works and how to build “Slinky Sounds”, an awesome little experiment that makes some sci-fi sound effects!
This week, Rachel shows us how to make a vortex canon. This simple device shoots rings of air, and it can be made any size from tiny to gigantic!
