Students learned about physics and enjoyed the very fun and entertaining show! What a cool field trip!


"The Physics Force is an enormously popular and entertaining troupe of performers. Some are high school teachers, some are professors at the University of Minnesota.  Over the 30 years of shows more than 500,000 spectators have enjoyed physics and experienced how fun it is. [They] have performed nationally and internationally including at Disney's Epcot Center, on Newton’s Apple TV show, and Knoff-Hoff Show, a popular German TV science program.  [Students will] see how to crush a 55 galon steel barrel in a fraction of a second, or how to survive a sledge hammer smash onto your chest.

The Physics Force is supported by the University of Minnesota's College of Science and Engineering, the National Science Foundations' Materials Research Science and Engineering Center at the University of Minnesota, 3M, and the Donaldson Foundation."
