Tickets for 2022 - 2023 Shows

Topics change from year to year, but all shows during an academic year are basically identical.  No refunds, but we will make every effort to change the date / time (email Frank).

January Shows are SOLD OUT

Next Available Dates:  
           Saturday April 1 (tickets will go on sale in March)
           Sunday April 2 (tickets will go on sale in March)

 April shows will be exactly the same as our January shows.  All shows during this school year are identical.  We will change the topics in the next school year.  

The Physics Show is a fun science show for kids and their families.  Typically, it is put on three weekends per year: one in September and two in January.  Every September we introduce new topics and in January we repeat the September show in order to accommodate more people.

Bringing Title One Schools to The Physics Show

In addition to putting on the weekend shows, we do weekday shows for local title one schools.  We provide bus transportation, The Physics Show, a tour of our campus, and a T-shirt.  All at no cost to the school.  Annually over 4000 students attended.  If you would like to contribute to this cause, all donations are appreciated and tax deductible. Here is a link to the Foothill-De Anza Foundation, a non-profit that handles our finances.  Thank you.
