Never has there been a time when an understanding of science has been more important to the well-being of individuals and to the nation than the present. Yet many recent studies have documented a lack of interest in science and hence a decline in science literacy in the United States. To address this problem, the University of Wisconsin - Madison in 1984 began a program called The Wonders of Physics aimed at generating interest in physics among people of all ages and backgrounds. The heart of the program is a fast-paced presentation of physics demonstrations carefully chosen to be entertaining as well as educational. Video DVDs of past presentations of The Wonders of Physics are available for purchase for $25 each or $600 for the entire set (postpaid in the U.S.) from the University of Wisconsin Department of Physics, 1150 University Avenue, Madison, WI 53706-1390.
