The Department of Physics and Astronomy is pleased to present “Physics 123: What Physicists Do”.  This is our annual series of five lectures by guest speakers, many of whom are Carleton alums.  The series is intended to introduce students to a broad range of real-world physics and to give some perspective on the kinds of work done by people with a physics background.  Speakers will be available for informal discussions over refreshments afterward.    Questions: Jay Tasson, Olin 337, x4418, jtasson@carleton.edu.


The speaker for May 12th will be Paul Grossi ('89). 

"Finding your Physics Goggles"

A physics student from the previous century shares his tale of keeping physics firmly in view after college, even without going to grad school.  Paul Grossi ('89), currently teaching in a small middle school for girls in California, will provide physics toys as he shares his adventures and some perspectives he gained along the way.
