2010 Assembly Programs




Let The Force Be With You! Assembly Program
Monday-Friday, April 12-16, 2010



Description: The Physics Force duo of former physics teachers, Hank Ryan and Jack Netland, go above and beyond (literally) to educate, demonstrate, and entertain K-12 students with their blend of slapstick comedy and entertaining physics. The visual excitement of a Physics Force Show brings wonder and scientific enthusiasm to thousands of K-12 students each year. This program comes to the U.P> from the School of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Minnesota. For more information: http://www.physics.umn.edu/outreach/pforce/ and see other side.
