Making science fun is definitely what a group of students from the University of Texas at Brownsville is accomplishing. In order to celebrate their 10th anniversary with the center for Gravitational Wave Astronomy they are hosting a science festival this coming weekend. To explain we had Christina Torres and some of the participants.
They said the CGWA Science Festival will take place from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, October 12. The event will feature a short opening ceremony with remarks from university leaders and students.
Afterwards the university's Society of Physics Students will perform their Physics Circus featuring the Fire Tornado, the Liquid Nitrogen Boom Barrel, Smoke Ring Cannons, a Drum Crush and other demonstrations which are used to get children and adults excited about physics. There will also be live music, physics posters and other activities. The event is free and open to the public.
