Physics Outreach Committee
The Physics Outreach Committee aims to illustrate the role which physics plays in everyday life. Our hope is to show students that they can use physics to understand the world around them. In particular we try to tailor our demonstrations and hands-on activities toward their areas of interest (music, sports, etc.). We feel that showing the role that physics plays in activities which students enjoy can inspire them to look more favorably at physics and science in general.
The Physics Outreach Committee hosts several Physics Family Fun Day events each year for the community. The committee also brings classroom experiences, performs demonstrations and offers hands on activities to local students, both within schools and to home-schooled groups.
