  The Physics Force is a very successful and entertaining outreach program of the  College of Science and Engineering 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.
