If you would like to have lunch with Physics students, faculty, and staff, during which you might discuss some physics (or maybe nothing at all related to physics), we have an app for that!
November 19th (Tuesday) Noon-1pm, the LDC Shearer Dining Room is when and where you should be. Meet in the study area outside Olin 331 just before noon to walk over together, or meet us there. ALL students interested in Physics, faculty, and staff are welcome and encouraged to join us; you do not need to have any certain level of experience with physics. First-year students are definitely welcome! The department will treat you to lunch.
Information that may be of interest to physics and astronomy faculty, staff, and students.

Attention physics majors, particularly juniors:If you are thinking about the possibility of pursuing a career in teaching physical science at the pre-college level, then you may be interested in the six-week summer program "TOPS" sponsored by the MIT-Harvard Center for Ultracold Atoms. Information is at http://cuaweb.mit.edu/Pages/TOPS.aspx
Summer Science Fellows -- The mission of the Summer Science Fellowship is to broaden participation of historically underrepresented groups (including gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, and disabilities) in the sciences/math. Carleton Summer Science Fellows will have the opportunity to work in a research lab either at Carleton or at another institution for two summers with a summer stipend of $4200. Summer Science Fellows will be expected to enroll in the 1 credit Science Fellows Research Colloquium in the spring before and the fall following their research experience.
- First or second year student
- Must have completed at least one introductory science course with lab by the end of the first year. Students interested in CS/math/stats must have completed at least one course in those fields
- Interest in obtaining a PhD in a science/math field or exploring science/math as a potential career.
Application deadline will be Monday, Jan 13, 2014.
