Physics for Kids BBQ

July 5, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm UTC-6

$5 – $10

You are invited to the renowned Physics for Kids Family BBQs! These Wednesday night family BBQs feature an outdoor picnic for families, complete with liquid nitrogen ice cream, hands-on science demonstrations, experiments and games, and a brief lecture by visiting physicists tailored to families and school-age children. We’ll have stomp rockets, Zomes, and more for the kids to play with, and adults will learn a thing or two as well. Learn about dark matter and quarks while eating your hamburger and chips!

This week features Alex Filippenko discussing the Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017! We’ll have solar viewers and scopes for you to check out the sun (not eclipsing), weather permitting.

Grilled burgers and other food are served, along with salads, chips, liquid nitrogen ice cream and beverages.

$10 suggested donation for adults and $5 for kids includes dinner!
