Physics is the most basic of all sciences and along with mathematics forms an essential part of study. The numerous applications of physics to communications, space research, medicine, and even branches as diverse as financial engineering only show the vast importance of physics to human knowledge.
In order to make this subject more interesting for students and common man, University of Wisconsin, Madison, began a program in 1984, called the Wonders of Physics. Physics demonstrations that appeal to all age groups are the core of this program. Professor Clint Sprott has been presenting this show on the Madison campus and a total audience of about 90,000 has benefited from these lively, educational demonstrations. In addition a traveling show has been developed and presented by physics graduate students and staff over a thousand times to audiences of all ages throughout Wisconsin and the USA.
