During the last week of each semester, the Little Shop sets up 150+ hands-on stations in the Physics teaching labs. The Little Shop is the final lab of the semester for all of our lab classes—it’s an excellent final lab, a chance to put the pieces together, to see some physics in action, while having some fun. This is a total of 2,000 CSU students, each semester. We set up the equipment, maintain it, and provide assistance during the week. We’ve provided this service for 20+ years at no cost to the Department.
