Ticket distribution for the 28th annual, "The Wonder of Physics" show is now underway. If you've never taken the kids to the presentation, get your free tickets today for this fascinating display of physics. The Wonder of Physics is performed by UW-Madison Professor Clint Sprott and his Physics students.

Professor Sprott began this program in 1984 to address a lack of interest in the sciences. The show is designed to educate and entertain by using a "fast-paced presentation of physics demonstrations." Sprott has performed over 200 times, to an audience numbering more than 70,000.

Tickets are available now and they are going fast. Reserve and print free tickets here.
