Blast off to a deeper understanding of momentum with the liquid nitrogen cannon.
This exciting physics show and lecture will entertain adults and children of all ages! Professor Daniel Whiteson, experimental physicist and web comic author, will discuss the detection of the Higgs boson that confirmed the Nobel-prize winning theoretical prediction. Educational hands-on activities will also be available.
This event honors the legacy of John Rosendahl, Instructional Programs Director in the Department of Physics & Astronomy from 1987 – 2012. He created memorable lecture demonstrations that were seen by more than 50,000 students, and conducted physics assemblies for K-12 schools. The goal of this annual event is to raise awareness of science and physics among K-12 students and the general public.
