Wooster Physics Outreach Program

Kirsten, John, Heather

Physics majors Kirsten Larson, John Gamble, and Heather Moore entertain elementary school children with physics demos as part of the Physics Club's award-winning outreach program.

Bringing Physics to Elementary School Children

Wooster's Physics Club performs science experiments for local elementary school classrooms to educate, entertain, and spark interest in science among grade school children. In 2007 and 2009 and 2013 our program won national Blake Lilly awards from the Society of Physics Students of the American Institute of Physics.

CoW Physics Majors have performed air pressure, electricity and magnetism, optics and mechanics experiments for appreciative audiences. In return, they have received wonderful cards & letters.

Contact Physics-Math Administrative Coordinator Jackie MIddleton to schedule a visit (see list of available dates below), or come to our annual spring Science Day.
