The Department of Physics & Astronomy at Texas A&M University cordially invites the public to our annual, free Physics & Engineering Festival that will take place on Saturday, April 4, 2020 in the Mitchell Physics Buildings on Texas A&M campus. People of all ages are invited to experience how exciting science and engineering is alongside the Yell leaders and Miss Reveille!
Over 200 interactive science exhibits for kids and adults will be presented by our faculty, researchers, and students from 10:00am until 3:30pm. The hands-on part of the Festival will be concluded by the Grand Finale at 3:30 pm: A Texas-sized depth charge with five barrels and 1,000 plastic balls! In addition to the hands-on exhibits there will be magic bubble shows, an immersive NASA experience, and an opportunity to meet astronauts Nancy Currie-Gregg and Michael Fossum. We will close out this educational experience with a public lecture by David Saltzberg, the science consultant for hit TV show "The Big Bang Theory"!
The Festival will kick off on the evening of April 3 with a talk by Richard Panek, award winning author of “The Trouble with Gravity: Solving the Mystery Beneath Our Feet” (https://physicsfestival.tamu.edu/richard-panek/).
