Little Shop of Physics: Sharing science

Weird ears, sticky liquids, electrostatic fleas, bolt-eaters, all delivered through tie-dyed scientists, researchers, and students.

Colorado State University’s Little Shop of Physics shares the wonder of science in classrooms, local schools, Native American reservations, public arenas, and more through take-home kits, on the web, and via television.

The program, which operates on private gifts and grants, is now nearly 25 years old. Little Shop has reached more than 300,000 K-12 students and provides workshops to more than 300 teachers annually. Science is real, accessible, creative, and fun! Help this popular program continue to thrive! Little Shop has gone global – taking Little Shop lessons to the children of Namibia – to inspire the next generation of scientists and teachers to change the world.
