The entire community is invited to this exciting event! Witness a professor lie on a bed of nails and have a cement block broken upon him. Experience light sabers, burning bubbles, rocket propulsion and giant smoke rings! This annual event features physics department members – faculty, staff, students and friends of the department – present various physics experiments and demonstrations "without the lecture." Physics Phun Nite is the department's most popular event. Activities are free and can only be described as a showcase of the most fascinating physical principles. Past years have featured such diverse demonstrations as the Van de Graaff, optical illusions, singing/dueling sewer pipes, light sabers and so much more!
