Got a future scientist in your house? Make sure to mark April 29 on your calendar—that's the date for the Physics Fair, hosted each year on the Homewood campus by the Department of Physics and Astronomy. (And to make the day even more fun, it takes place in the Bloomberg Center on Spring Fair weekend.)

Allow your posse plenty of time—activities are geared to all ages and include 200 hands-on physics demonstrations, Science Bowl team competitions, a Science Challenge for individuals, two Professor Extraordinaire shows, a scavenger hunt, water rockets, a construction building contest, and more. Plus, you can visit the Morris W. Offit Telescope.

The hours are 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and everything is free. Read more about the activities on the Physics and Astronomy website.
