The Physics Factory is a team of scientists and educators with a common goal: to share their enthusiasm for physics with students, teachers and the community. Through a combination of hands-on learning and eye-popping stage shows, The Physics Factory shows that physics is an exciting process of discovery and invention, and a rewarding career.

In 2005 we organized as a nonprofit and have been building on our success ever since. We are actively seeking grants and donations to fund the growth of our programs, including outreach, student mentoring, and resources for science teachers.
