$50 will educate a child at Robert’s school in Uganda for 1 year. The story of the school, how it was founded, the students who live and study there, the teachers who spend their days with them, and the work that CSU and the Little Shop of Physics are doing there, is a compelling one. At this event, we’ll share this story, the work we are doing with the school, and how you can help. We’ll share some of the activities we shared with the students and teachers this year, as well as our plans for the future.
Members of CSU’s Little Shop of Physics in the College of Natural Sciences joined Robert Serunjogi for a visit to the orphanage Robert founded in his home village in Uganda. The orphanage is now a school, due to construction and development made possible with the help of Laura Schreck, a recent CSU graduate, who worked tirelessly to raise funds and provide support.
For people who have supported the development of the school, know this: The community supports the school 100%. They have donated labor, materials, time, and care. It’s amazing to see how much has been done, and how well things are going.
On Saturday, February 28, 2015, thousands of scientists of all ages from Pre-K to Gray descended on the Lory Student Center at Colorado State University. The 24th Annual Open House features the hands-on science experiments that are synonymous with the Little Shop of Physics.
We polled CMMAP (Center for Multiscale Modelling of Atmospheric Processes) scientists as to what they thought were the 10 most important things that everyone should know about the atmosphere. We took their answers and condensed them into a list of 10 items, with explanations and activities you can use to teach these concepts to your […]
Liquid oxygen is collected on a pretzel, and when lit it burns like a Roman Candle!
Little Shop of Physics and CMMAP teamed up for the for the 8th time to offer summer courses at Colorado State University for primary and secondary science teachers. The courses provide college-level content on the basic physics of the atmosphere, weather, climate, climate modeling, and climate change as well as demonstrating dozens of inquiry-based activities suitable […]
The USA Science and Engineering Festival is a public events that brought in over 250,000 to Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington DC. It is held every two years, and is a national grassroots effort to advance STEM education and inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers.
