The Little Shop of Physics


The Little Shop of Physics started as a small hands-on science program in the early 1990's. Since then it has grown tremendously! The success of the program is due in no small part to the Center for Multiscale Modeling of Atmospheric Processes (CMMAP), Colorado State University and our own College of Natural Sciences and Department of Physics.

Little Shop of Physics is, at it’s core, a traveling hands-on science program. However, there are many more pieces that add up to what the Little Shop of Physics really is.

Every year, the tie-dye clad crew goes on the road to share science with over 20,000 students in Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota, New Mexico and Nebraska.

Little Shop of Physics also hosts numerous teacher workshops. Every summer, in conjunction with our partners at CMMAP, Little Shop offers a week long workshop for 40 teachers on how to teach weather and climate.

For all the folks that we can't visit, Little Shop of Physics has gone to the media! The EveryDay Science show has been produced with our partners at PSD Channel 10 for over a decade! We have recently started two new species of video podcasts, Tips for Teachers and Science It Up! You can catch all the recent episodes on our podcast page!
