What is the Little Shop of Physics?

“The Little Shop of Physics, part of the CSU College of Natural Sciences, has always been a hands-on program, something that sets it apart from other science outreach programs. Students are the scientists in the Little Shop of Physics. But we don’t just teach science, we teach that science is something anyone can do, that it is field that is interesting and accessible to anyone. We believe—and we demonstrate—that any one, of any age, can understand science at some level. Our expertise in developing such lessons allows us to provide teachers of any grade level tools that they can use to incorporate science into their curriculum inexpensively and effectively. Currently, we share these ideas in workshops with over 300 teachers each year.” —from the LSoP website
