Maryland Physics is introducing
children and teens to the exciting world of physics through several
educational outreach programs. With the help of our world-class
lecture-demonstration facility, our scientists have developed programs
that both educate and entertain. From making silly putty with pre-teens
to helping teachers teach physics, the University of Maryland is
bringing physics to the Maryland/Washington DC community and beyond.
