written by the Phun Physics
Phun Physics is a physics demonstration show developed by instructors at the University of Virginia.   The demonstrations introduce several basic physics topics, are approximately 45 minutes long, and can be varied for presentation to grades 3-12.  The purpose of the show is to spark students' interest in science.  Many of the activities can be easily set up in a science classroom.  Users can link to a complete list of demonstrations with step-by-step instructions for classroom set-up and background information.  Explanations of the phenomena observed are fully discussed.

**NOTE** The road show itself is available only to schools within a 60-mile radius of Charlottesburg, Virginia, but the web-based procedurals are freely accessible to online users.
