About the Program

Squishy Science Sunday is scheduled for March 3, 2024 from 11am to 3pm at the Minneapolis Convention Center. It is a free event developed for all ages. Participants will enjoy fun experiments, science demonstrations, opportunities to talk one-on-one with a physicist, and learn about statistical physics, biophysics, polymers, and soft matter.

Are you a physicist or student who is one of the 12,000 expected attendees of the upcoming March 2024 APS meeting? If so, Squishy Science Sunday is an opportunity for the physics community to share the excitement of what they do directly with the public, disseminating scientific research to curious, young minds. Interested volunteers should contact APS DSOFT directly for details.
