This workshop will be the meeting point for the various physics shows
which are already in existence across
The workshop will consists of two series of events. The first of these are the lectures. There will be lectures on everything which is required to set up a physics show, from show techniques to PR, and from demonstrations to feedback from schools.
The second track in the workshop will be experimental sessions. The basic idea of these sessions is that people can get hands-on experience with experiments with which they are not familiar. We are encouraging all of the groups to bring their best experiments, and we expect to cover most areas of physics with at least a few experiments. For the new people, the experimental sessions will be about learning how to perform the standard experiments. For the people who already have a physics show, this will be a chance to share detailed technical information about the experiments. We have arranged for the technical and electronics workshop to be at our disposal during these weeks, so that we can build small pieces of equipment if this is needed.
One other highlight of the program is the visit to Teyler's Museum in
In between the scheduled progam, there will be
plenty of time for small-scale discussions and collaborations. We hope that by
giving people plenty of time to discuss specific experiments and problems in
small groups, an organic network of contacts will form across
