A Family-Oriented Event
 
"Physics professors Bob Jones, Olivier Pfister, Cass Sackett, and Steve Thornton will delight the crowd with strange and mystifying events."
ABSTRACT:
See rockets shooting around the auditorium, balls suspended in air, curve balls flying overhead, Van de Graaff generators, skaters spinning around. You will see you a bunch of fascinating things you should never do at home. We might even put someone on a bed of nails and crush a cement block on top of them. As usual, there will be plenty of surprises in store. These demonstrations will intrigue and excite both young and old and from novice to expert. Bring your family and friends, but come on time. For more information about this free public event call 924-3781.
