The Wonders of Physics Traveling Show is coming to town
MURRAY, Ky. – Murray State University’s college of science, engineering and technology and the Office of Regional Stewardship have partnered with the Calloway County Conservation District to bring The Wonders of Physics Traveling Show to West Kentucky for K-12 students groups to enjoy. The goal is to raise awareness of and to promote STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education.

The Wonders of Physics is offered by the University of Wisconsin department of physics and is an engaging and educational experience. Demonstrations help students better understand physics in the world around them, while providing fun at the same time. Volunteers from the audience are often asked to get involved with the activities.

Each show is designed to last about an hour and will explore how the natural world works. Topics covered will include the six main areas of classical physics: motion, heat, sound, electricity, magnetism and light.

Locations and times are:
• Jan. 25 – Calloway County Middle School, 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
