Learn about "passive" cooking through this energy efficient workshop! Participants will make pasta noodles by using hot water and an insulated travel mug, and eat a delicious meal. Water molecules, energy, heat, isolated systems - these are only a few physical concepts introduced in this engaging demonstration!

Build a cost-effective amplifier for your SPS chapter, or use this as a workshop template for community outreach. Empower participants by helping them create an effective, useful, and integral electronic device.

Construct a simple motor out of everyday materials in this workshop. Particpants learn first hand how to leverage the science of electricity and magnetism to create useful tools that we use every day.

Participants learn the everyday science of electric motors in this fun and engaging workshop activity. 

This demonstration dramatically shows how not just the strength of a material, but how it is designed, is important when withstanding forces.

After completing Part 1, explore solar system formation, tides, and planetary rings using a spandex sheet.

By constructing a simple straw “oboe,” participants learn about sound waves and closed pipe resonance. 

This workshop uses marshmallows to teach participants about waves and to calculate the speed of light. 

This demonstration shows how light changes paths when travelling through different materials. Snell’s Law and the critical angle are explored using lasers and water.
