Physics Force


The Physics Force is a K-12 outreach program through the University of Minnesota. Our program's greatest success is generating an interest in science in K-12 students. We go above and beyond to educate and entertain. Physics Force does things on a grand scale to bring excitement and wonder to the thousands of students who attend our shows every year.
