National Physics Day Show At U.Va. April 21

April 9, 2004 --

WHAT: Tenth Annual National Physics Day Show at the University of Virginia

WHEN: Wednesday, April 21, 6 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.

WHERE: U.Va. Physics Building, Room 203 (Jesse W. Beams Laboratory of Physics)
382 McCormick Road

This free family-oriented physics demonstration show is for the general public and draws large crowds each year. Physics professors Steve Thornton and Robert Watkins and lecture demonstrator Mike Timmins will delight the crowd by balancing blocks and moving around fireballs, throwing curve balls, exploding balloons, covering the audience with toilet paper, and lots more. These demonstrations will intrigue and excite both young and old, novice to expert.

Because of large crowds in recent years, there will be two identical shows this year - at 6 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. Bring your family and friends, and please come on time. Parking is available in the parking garage on Emmet Street, or after 5 p.m. in Scott Stadium football stadium lots.
