Be Amazed by a Phenomenal Faraday Physics Lecture

If you’re a science buff or your child is an aspiring scientist, don’t miss a chance to be amazed by physics in action on Rutgers Day.

The Faraday Children’s Physics Lecture is entertaining for everyone, whether you’re 5 or 105. Flowers shatter like glass. Hydrogen balloons explode. A fire extinguisher rockets a person across the room. And that bed of nails—well, come see for yourself.

The lectures, which are given every year around the holiday season, are based on the popular children’s lectures of 19th-century physicist Michael Faraday.

An exciting 90-minute show is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. on April 30 at the Physics Lecture Hall Auditorium on Busch Campus.  Be sure to arrive early as this popular event fills up fast.

Check out the video from this year’s Christmas show to get in the physics mood:
