The 2021 live, in-person shows have been canceled. We look forward to hosting you again in 2022. Instead, we invite you to join The Wonders of Physics video contest!
Welcome to The Wonders of Physics at the University of Wisconsin – Madison
Since 1984, The Wonders of Physics has educated and entertained thousands of schoolchildren, families, and the general public.
What are Teachers saying about the Wonders of Physics show?
“It was a great introduction to physics for them, and throughout the year, they would relate concepts to the program.”
“The program generated tremendous discussions amongst the children for quite a few days. It was a wonderful presentation!”
“It was an excellent opportunity for them to see an expansion of science activites that may be discussed in the elementary classroom.”
“I enjoyed watching the excitement of the students. It was very engaging.”
The Wonders of Physics program is made possible by grant funding from the Office of Fusion Energy Sciences of the United States Department of Energy, generous donations from our loyal patrons, and revenue from doing traveling shows!
