2022 - 2023 Shows

We were hoping to be back on our normal September / January schedule, but repairs at the theater forced us to make it January / April this year.

January 7 & 8, 2023

January 21 & 22, 2023

April 1 & 2, 2023

Tickets will go on sale as the events get closer.  All shows during this school year are identical.  

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.
