Welcome to College of Western Idaho's Physics Club! We do everything from freezing and breaking racquet balls with liquid nitrogen to using sound waves to manipulate a Non-Newtonian Fluid. Our club travels to exciting places where real-life physics is in action, such as the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Observatory. In addition, we help kids learn physics and develop a passion for experimentation by participating in scientific demonstrations at schools.

What do you want to do? What projects or experiments do you want to build? Join us to get involved!
