One of the many goals of the Physics Department is to make science fun and accessible to all. To further this end, the department sponsors a program that supports outreach activities. Our Physics Outreach Program (POP) volunteers visit local organizations, classrooms and schools and perform demonstrations. Recent activities have included:
- several visits to a local elementary school's 'after-school program';
- visits to campus from the Kopernik Observatory's Space Science Education participants; and
- visits to campus by a group of middle-school students to see fun demonstrations on National Lab Day in May 2010.
If you are interested in requesting an in-house demonstration (need two or three weeks notice) or inviting POP to your site, contact Mark Stephens at the address to the right.
