Physics is the study of how things move, how they push and pull on each other, and how they exchange energy. The Physics Experience show is a fast-paced, engaging, and educational physics program, filled with demonstrations that help people better understand the physics in the world around them, while having fun at the same time!   Giving kids superpowers!

The Physics Experience is based on The Wonders of Physics (TWoP) program from the University of Wisconsin-Madison Physics Department. Since 1984, TWoP has educated and entertained hundreds of thousands of schoolchildren, families, and the general public.
