Jan. 8-9, 2018: Physics for the Season of Lights: The Physics of Motion

The University of Pennsylvania Department of Physics and Astronomy presents the 18th (!!) annual

Physics for the Season of Lights:

The Physics of Motion
Mon January 8, 2018 & Tue January 9, 2018
Two Presentations Each Day
9:30-11:30 AM and 12 noon-2 PM

David Rittenhouse Laboratory, lecture hall A1
33rd and Walnut Streets

A two hour presentation of Penn’s best mechanics demonstrations, aimed at high school and middle school students.

We will have a 10 minute break after an hour, with refreshments generously provided by Wawa.

This is the 3rd topic in a three-year cycle. We start with Light & Waves, followed by Electricity & Magnetism the next year, and finally Mechanics the third year.

There is no expectation of prior knowledge, so you can start at any point in the cycle; and repeat visitors will not see the same thing the following year.

There is no cost for attendance, but we ask you to register by email and let us know how many seats you will need. Please be sure to include enough chaperones for good order. Seats are given on a first-come basis.
