“Over the years, I have been part of many science events for the general public. The Texas A&M Physics and Engineering Festival stands among the very best. It is a high quality, wonderfully creative, world-class offering.”
– Brian Greene
Next Festival: April 4, 2020
The Department of Physics & Astronomy at Texas A&M University invites the public to an entertaining and informative event. People of all ages will find funny, puzzling, and fascinating hands-on experiments. Everyone is invited to participate. All events are free of charge and no registration is needed!
With over 200 amazing, interactive physics demonstrations, specialized programs by age groups, and public lectures by prominent scientists and astronauts, it’s no surprise that annually over 7,000 visitors come from around the world to join in the excitement!
