LSOP In Action
Keep up to date with the Little Shop of Physics! What have we been up to recently? Events big and small, check it out here!
CenturyLink and the Denver Broncos Tackle STEM sponsored Little Shop of Physics engagement activities in 2018-2019. These events included 7 school/club and two public events which in total reached 12,000 people. This partnership also sponsored science giveaways for all 20,000 K-12 students that the Little Shop of Physics visited this year!
Check out LSOP’s participation in CSU’s for Math-Science-Tech (MST) Day, a fun-filled day with interactive STEM content (like the Little Shop of Physics!), admissions information, CSU student mentoring, and cultural programming. This even is sponsored by El Centro and has a focus on traditionally underserved and Latinx populations.
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.

During the first week of October, LSOP visited Fort Washakie School on the Wind River Reservation. All 500 students got to spend 45 minutes exploring our 100+ hands-on science experiments.
On August 21, 2017 a total solar eclipse swept in a thin arc across the country, and a partial eclipse was viewable across almost the entire continental United States. This also happened to be the first day of the 2017-2018 academic year, and students all over Colorado State University took a break from their studies to watch this rare celestial event.
The Little Shop of Physics teamed up with CenturyLink and the Denver Broncos Tackle STEM to bring an awesome hands-on science experience to thousands of Colorado children!
On February 25, the Little Shop of Physics held it’s 26th Annual Open House, the biggest one yet! Thanks to all of those who came out to make this event spectacular!
The 26th Annual Open House is Saturday, February 25, 2017 at the Colorado State University Lory Student Center. It’s free and open to the public! Come join the fun!
Little Shop of Physics has been around for 25 years and has shared our unique approach to science with over 500,000 children. A quarter of a century…half a million kids.
In January, Little Shop of Physics and B2Gold ran a series science camps with students in Namibia. Here’s a video capturing some of the fun we had with our first group of students from Otjiwarango.
Check out the LSOP Crew and the College of Natural Sciences Learning Community doing science with a 30-foot parachute!
The LSOP teamed up with the Denver Broncos and CenturyLink to bring the Traveling Science Experience to the Denver Broncos Boys and Girls Club as part of their Mad Scientist Halloween Party.
Once a month, the Little Shop of Physics Crew teams up with the CSU College of Natural Sciences Learning Community for an event called “Get Your Science On”. In September, we explored giant water balloons. Fun was had by all.
The Little Shop of Physics in partnership with B2Gold is presented a series of workshops for teacher in Namibia in January 2016. Here’s a video that captures the spirit of our 3rd workshop.
