About Us
Little Shop of Physic (LSOP) is a group of science educators and science students based out of Colorado State University. Our goal is to make science accessible and teach people that science is something anyone can do. Our program offerings include: school visits, teacher resources, teacher workshops, as well as Everyday Science shows, podcasts, and classroom kits.
   


Mission

• Find creative ways to share the wonder of science.
• Present a unique hands-on science experience to a diverse range of students.
• Involve undergraduates in significant and meaningful service.
• Share ideas and insights with current and future teachers.

History

LSOP had humble beginnings. In the early days, only 25 experiments were packed into the back of an old VW bus and presented to a few local schools each year. Over the years, LSOP has grown into a dynamic science outreach program that works with teachers, schools, and students of all ages. The VW bus is now a 12-passenger van that takes over 100 interactive exhibits to every school. Over 20, 000 students get the LSOP experience every year —not including the 8,000+ folks who attend our annual Open House. LSOP visits schools all over Colorado, in South Dakota, New Mexico, Wyoming, and Nebraska.

Everyday Science Show!


“We don't
show students
science; we
help them do
science.”

Nowadays, LSOP is in the media! LSOP and our partners at PSD Channel 10 have produced the Everyday Science show for over a decade! Check out the new video podcasts: 10 Things You Should Know About... You can catch all the recent episodes on our podcast page!

We couldn't be what we are now without the help of our staff and our partners. Discover how you can help LSOP.
