Upcoming Events

  • April 2 (Monday) 3:10-4:20pm, Olin 2nd floor

    Everyone is invited to see the the interesting projects that our upper level physics students have been doing.  Projects might include (but won't be limited to) the lamp tag project students worked on last summer and some of the optics experiments in Marty's advanced optics labs as well as some of the final projects that the students in electronics made.  These nifty activities are often hidden from view and we would like everyone to see them.  First and second year students considering a physics major are particularly encouraged to attend.  There will be prizes and you must be present to win!
