LSOP Spring Science Extravaganza

The Little Shop of Physics was beyond excited to welcome the public — over 5000 folks in total — back to CSU campus for a day of hands-on science fun! On April 23, 2022 we hosted our first ever Spring Science Extravaganza! This outdoor event featured over 200 of our favorite hands-on experiment stations as well as some experiments that are too big (or messy) to do inside.

Some highlights included the Chromozone, infrared selfies, the giant chair illusion, karaoke physics, the world’s biggest water balloon, catch a wave, plush projectiles, the levitation station, whacky wavy inflatable arm-flailing tube men, string fountain, loop-to-loop, beach ball croquet, giant fog rings, bubbletopia, bicycle generator, pool ball pendulum waves, giant Newton’s cradle, giant gravity well, are you fast enough?, and jump on!

We were also joined by some awesome science partners from CSU and beyond!
