Science LIVE! Phenomenal Physics

Physics tends to frighten off a lot of people young and old, but our “Phenomenal Physics” show makes physics approachable and (most-importantly) FUN!

How heavy is the air around us?  What can one nail do that nine hundred can’t?  Our “Phenomenal Physics” show puts tons of science under pressure and shows off just how amazing physics can be when it gets moving.  We also show off and do demonstrations with the coolest thing you will ever see in your entire life.  No joke.  It’s seriously that cool.

Morehead's innovative "Science LIVE!" programs allow students and teachers to interact with science in a fun, engaging way. Morehead’s “mad scientists” present live demonstrations of science principles with vivid, exciting experiments. Volunteers from the audience are invited to go "on stage" and become part of the show as "lab assistants."
