If you’ve never seen a physicist drop 20 feet through thin air while a friend shoots a ball at him from a cannon, or grown men and women shooting streams of toilet paper over an audience with a leaf blower, then the University of Minnesota Physics Force has a show for you. The show is a unique mix of physics demonstrations and slapstick humor suitable for adults and children of all ages.
The Physics Force is a successful and entertaining outreach program of the University of Minnesota’s College of Science and Engineering, with a goal to show that difficult subjects like physics and math can be fun and interesting.
