Physics Dept. and Planetarium Sponsor NASA Exhibit

Here. There. Everywhere.

NASA's "Here. There. Everywhere." The physics that is all around you ("here"), elsewhere on Earth ("there"), and in the rest of the universe ("everywhere").

The Department of Physics and the Radford University Planetarium are sponsors of the traveling NASA exhibit "Here. There. Everywhere." throughout the month of November. This exhibit is a collection of exhibitions, posters and hands-on activities that teaches the basics of physics using everyday examples. The exhibit will be located in the first floor hallways of Reed & Curie Halls from November 7 through November 29. After being at RU, the exhibit will go to the International Falls Public Library (Minnesota).

The exhibit is a self-guided tour. However, Radford University physics students will be available "to assist with some of the hands-on experiences," Physics Professor Rhett Herman said. The major part of the exhibit will include 11 large 7-feet-tall posters that visitors can walk through and explore, Herman said.

A number of nearby--and some not-so-nearby--schools have scheduled field trips with the specific goal of experiencing this exhibit. In addtion, two long-scheduled visiting Science Day groups will have as part of their regular Science Day rotation time slots for touring the exhibit and experiencing the hands-on acitivites.

To learn more about this exhibit, contact Dr. Rhett Herman at (540) 831-5441 or rherman@radford.edu.
