Join us for a fun Physics Table lunch!
Tuesday, October 21st (week 6), we will hold our weekly Physics Table in the LDC's Shearer Dining Room. Meet in the lounge area outside Olin 331 at about 11:55 am to walk over as a group, or just meet us inside the front door at the LDC.
ALL students, faculty, and staff interested in Physics are invited to join in. You don't have to have any particular level of knowledge to come; we welcome everyone! If you are off board, or if it's your first ever PT, we'll treat you to lunch.
On Wednesday, Oct 22 at 3:30 pm, the Carleton and St Olaf physics departments will be holding a joint poster session for students to present what they did during the summer. This is intended to be an opportunity for physics majors to learn about the breadth of experiences that other physics students had during the summer (plus it's a chance to catch up with Matt Wiebold and Jay Tasson). We welcome posters ranging from summer research projects to posters about internships or teaching experiences. If you are a sophomore this event will help you to begin thinking about what you might want to do next summer.
Talk to Trenne or Melissa about transportation to the event!
View the partial solar eclipse beginning at 4:20 PM if clear. Never look directly at the Sun!
A partial solar eclipse will occur starting around 4:20 PM and lasting until the Sun gets too low (sunset is at 6:15). Never look at the Sun directly! You are welcome to come to Goodsell Observatory, which will have safe means of viewing the eclipse if it is clear.

From the dean's office:
"Here are the latest details about the student event that is scheduled with
the architects from EYP on Wednesday, Oct. 22. The time has been changed to
6:30 - 8 p.m. and the location will be Olin 141. We will have pizza and pop
available for dinner. If each department could recruit 5-10 students to
attend this meeting that would be very helpful. Please let us know
approximately how many you expect from your department so that we have an
idea how much food to order. Please let me know if you have any questions
Email Trenne if you are interested in participating!
