PHOTON at Ohio State Fair 2003

Ohio State Physics Students at the State Fair Friday, August 15, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Members of Sigma Pi Sigma are at the 2003 Ohio State Fair as part of their newly-developed outreach program, Physics Outreach To Our Neighbors (PHOTON). These dedicated physics students are trying to spread interest in physics among the general public, especially children. In a booth set up in the Lausche Building, home to Ohio 4-H, SPS has arranged numerous experiments, from dropping balloons in liquid nitrogen to putting CDís in a microwave oven. Each experiment is attended by a physics student, who explains to the audience what is happening and why. Children are encouraged to take a hands-on approach by asking questions and even performing some additional tabletop demonstrations themselves with guidance from an SPS student. The Ohio State Fair runs through August 18.
