    • Join us for a fun Physics Table lunch! 

      Tuesday, November 18th (week 10), we will hold the last Physics Table of the term 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.  

    • PHYS 228 (A & N) students will be presenting their posters this Wednesday during 2A in Olin 211.  There will be some treats and hot beverages there as well.  You are all invited to come check out what they've been working on!

    • The University of Wisconsin-Madison has a new, first of its kind master's program in resource and energy demand analysis (REDA). This would be an interesting opportunity for students and graduates who are interested in sustainability and in promising careers. 

      REDA is a 10-month intensive master's program which trains students in economics and data analytics for careers evaluating resource and energy conservation programs and strategies.  Demand for these skills is growing rapidly due to the deployment of smart technologies and global efforts to move to a low-carbon economy
