Hands-on Demonstrations

How do superconductors work? How will they change our world? Visit the conference exhibits to participate in demos, prototypes and applications.


Explore Physics

Investigate the unique properties of solids, liquids, gases and plasmas and how things change from one state of matter to another. See how physics uses ordinary objects to demonstrate the physics at work around us each day.


See Prototypes & Applications
