Every Tuesday, a team of undergraduate interns and volunteers joins the Little Shop staff to brainstorm new ideas, to create new projects, and to keep everything humming. Over the course of a year, over 20,000 people work with our experiment stations; it takes some effort to keep things going!

Adam and McKenna work on the Rolling Racer, a demonstration of rotational energy.

Bryan puts the finishing touches on a device to launch small fog rings. The fog shows the amazing spin of the vortices as they move.

Students are expected to build an experiment station, develop the written materials that accompany it, and create a video that explains their work.

These “Get Your Science On” videos are very popular with colleagues at other institutions.
