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, email@example.com.
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.
