Open House at Augustana College - "Physics MythBusters"

Sunday, April 15, 2007 from 1:00-4:00 pm and Sunday, April 22, 2007 from 1:00-4:00 pm
First Floor, Science Building

We will bust myths and common misconceptions about temperature, light, motion, phases of matter, and more!

Do you think it has to be hot for something to boil?
Can we hammer nails with a banana?
Can liquids be hard?
Is levitation possible?
Is air a gas?
Are lasers always red dots?
Are all explosions hot?

The answers may surprise you.  Demonstrations presented by Jake Wietting, Laura Luloff, Alaina Orwitz, Gabe Caceres, Jenna McAdam, Jessica Belle, Rose Davidson and Cecilia Vogel.

Here are some photographs taken at the open house on April 15, 2007.
