Phenomenal Physics Science Fair 2013
It’s almost time for Phenomenal Physics Science Fair 2013. This year more than 250 students from Compass Academy, Eagle Rock Middle School, Idaho Falls High School, and Skyline High School will participate. Over the past few weeks students have competed in science fairs at local schools, along the way learning a few things about the exciting world of science. The top students from the fairs have been chosen to attend the Phenomenal Physics Science Fair. Activities will include judging of students’ fair projects; lectures by university professors, science and engineering professionals, and Idaho State University (ISU) students; the egg drop competition, the egg smash contest, and awards ceremony. Plus, lunch will be provided!
Science Fair Agenda
On April 19, students will arrive by bus at ISU-University of Idaho’s University Place in Idaho Falls for the all-day event. Students will be able to attend lectures on various topics of scientific interest, such as the effects of meth on the body, the environmental impacts of the Fukushima nuclear accident (including radioactive fallout that was actually measured at the Idaho National Laboratory), and practical applications of physics. Examples of other disciplines that will be covered in the presentations include:
- Material Science
- Physics of the Human Body.

Dear Phenomenal Physics supporter::
Welcome to Phenomenal Physics, 2012–2013! We are excited to announce a new information distribution system and a redesigned Web site for our program. This year we will distribute all our information and articles through e-mail and our Web site (no longer involving the Post Register newspaper). With this change, we need your help to expand our network of supporters. If you know of anyone who might be interested in receiving our articles, please invite them to
sign up or to send us their contact information.
What is Phenomenal Physics?
As a reminder, or for those new to our program, Phenomenal Physics is a program intended to enhance the education and interest of middle and high school students in science. Our goal is to build relationships and continue to expand the program to offer scholarships to students and grants for the purchase of lab supplies and equipment for use in local schools. While the program is heavily rooted in science education, it is free and available to everyone interested in solving everyday problems.
