Physics Factory

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.

Mentoring is a great way to become involved in the Physics Factory. You will sharpen your science skills while also helping young students understand the world they live in. Becoming a mentor requires no previous training in science or education -- our only prerequisite is an enthusiasm to learn. Our instructors work side-by-side with mentors to help them develop their science and training skills. Our mentors learn to guide students through hands-on learning activities. They also assist with the live Physics Bus traveling science shows, both behind the scenes and as presenters. If you are considering a career in science or education, the Physics Factory is a great addition to your résumé. You may also be able to earn college credit for your efforts! Please contact us for more information on how you can become a Physics Factory mentor!

"Working with the Physics Factory provided a great learning experience for myself and the students. Using their own hands and ideas to experiment with, they are performing the "art" of physics. They not only get inkling into the physical ideas, they actually made it work! No black boxes here.The factory churns out a great product, educated students with a hunger for more knowledge and mentors who are often learning just as much or more from the students."  Rob Lee Jr., former Physics Factory mentor, Adjunct Faculty at Pima College
