The National Physics Day Show

The National Physics Day Show is put on each Spring during the third week of April by UVa Physics professors with the help of the Lecture Demonstration Lab. In 1995, Professor Steve Thornton and colleagues at UVa realized that we should have a National Physics Day as part of National Science and Technology Week, which would occur on the day of our Physics Day Show. This tradition has been going on for over 20 years at UVa. Videos and other information on the show is available at the following link:

The Summer Physics Show

The Summer Physics Show is an event that is part of the July/August BLAST Science Camp. The show presenters are typically undergraduate students who receive guidance from UVa Physics professors and help from the Lecture Demonstration Lab. Video and other content soon to be added below.
