Texas A&M University's Physics Festival started off with a bang. Rudder Tower and the fountain area outside were transformed into a hands-on lab.
Kids and parents alike could take a segway for a test drive, or create some massive bubbles.
Physics students say it's important to show kids that science can be fun, because science education is important.
Its nice to get more kids interested in science itself and for the country as a whole, and just for the kids themselves. Its nice to be curious about the world around you," said Physics major Andrew Bradshaw.
Most of the demonstrators are members of the Society of Physics Students. The college kids also take their show on the road to local elementary schools.
