Science Education on the Road: 2013 Princeton University Community and Staff Day

It was a beautiful autumn day in Princeton, NJ. As tailgaters got ready for the football game (Princeton vs. Lafayette) in Lot 21, others took the short walk into Jadwin Gym to take part in the University's Annual Community & Staff Day.

PPPL was represented by the Science Education Department and in usual Science Ed. fashion, we did not disappoint! The table was busy all day with kids and adults equally fascinated by what they learned... Plasma! From the hair-raising Van de Graaff generator to the innovative Plasma Speaker to the surprising vacuum pump marshmallow experiment, folks were wowed by what they saw.

Spreading the word about Plasma while having a great time, check!
