There are many seats to accomodate attendees with disabilities.
Arrive 15 min. early to choose one if needed.
We have a web site to provide you with some vocabulary, a description of the physics of the demos, cross reference to the FOSS kits, and some experiments you and your students can do back at school. You will be able to find it at http://www.physics.umn.edu/outreach/pforce/circus/
Physics Outreach, UMn
The Physics Force is a very successful and entertaining outreach program of the School of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Minnesota developed to make science exciting and fun for students of all ages, from 5 to 105. The Force consists of high school teachers and professors from the University of Minnesota School of Physics and Astronomy. We have performed variations of The Force at Disney's Epcot Center, parts of it were shown on Newton’s Apple and several of us have performed demonstrations on the Knoff-Hoff Show, a very successful German T.V. science program. We hope you will come join us for the fun and excitement (like crushing a 55 gal. steel barrel in a fraction of a second) but don't be surprised when you see how much physics you learn.
