1:00 - 3:00PM
UCI Physical Sciences Lecture Hall (PSLH)

This exciting physics show and lecture will entertain children and adults!

1:00 - UCI students will kick off the event with a lively show demonstrating concepts of electricity. Learn about voltage, current and resistance. Watch the jumping ring and the can crusher, and participate in educational hands-on activities.

2:00 - Professor Bill Heidbrink describes the quest to use magnetic fields to harness fusion energy for clean, abundant electricity. Is there a magnetic bottle that can contain 100-million degree ions?

3:00 - Following the demonstrations and lecture, UCI students will host a Q&A session about life in college.

This event honors the legacy of John Rosendahl, Instructional Programs Director in the UCI Department of Physics & Astronomy from 1987 – 2012. He created memorable lecture demonstrations that were seen by more than 50,000 students, and conducted physics assemblies for K-12 schools.
