Check back here in the Fall semester!
End of the Year Cookout
For our last meeting of the year, we had a cookout at Bryan park! To check out a few pictures from the event click the link below.
SPS Zone 8 Meeting
In April we will be hosting the Society of Physics Students (SPS) Zone 8 Meeting. SPS chapters from around the area are invited to join us. While there will be a few featured speakers, the main focus of this meeting is going to be undergraduate research and students are encouraged to present their research in the form of a poster or short talk. We hope that this meeting will not only provide you with a relaxed setting in which to present your research, but also allow you to meet other local SPS members and learn about some of the amazing projects that they are involved with. For more information about the meeting, please check out the main page below.
Pi Day Fundraiser
To celebrate Pi Day (on 3-14-10) we auctioned off pies for students to throw at some of their professors! To see pictures from the event see the main page below.
Coffee and Doughnut Sale
As a fundrasing actvity we sold coffee and doughnuts on the first Monday and Wednesday of each month in SW 113. Check out the page below for more information.
End of the Semester Dinner Fall 2009
This semester we celebrated the end of the fall semester by going out to dinner at Opie Taylors paid for by the physics department! We had another huge turnout!
End of the Semester Dinner Spring 2009
We had a huge turn out (we never pass up a free dinner) for the end of the dinner at Yogi's!
Trip to Fermilab
We traveled to fermilab for an overnight trip from April 4th-5th and get a "backstage" tour the facility from some of IU's faculty and scientists.
Society of Physics Students and Sigma Pi Sigma Congress
Three members traveled to Fermilab for the (November 6-8) 2008 Society of Physics Students and Sigma Pi Sigma Quadrennial Congress. They spent a packed weekend making new connections, interacting with Fermilab scientists and distinguished speakers, debating common concerns for the discipline and society, and touring Fermilab's unique experiments and grounds.
Physics and Astronomy Open Houses
Each year the Physics and Astronomy community at Indiana University hosts an Open House. The physics club is in charge of putting on a lecture-demonstrations show filled fun physics experiments. Visitors can also enjoy hands-on demonstrations in the Indoor and Outdoor Exploration areas.
BloomingKids Lab Demonstrations
BloomingKids is part of a state-wide program that pairs up local 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade students with college students, acting as mentors, to form "buddy pairs." The Physics Club invited some of these kids to Swain to show them some exciting physics demos. Check out some of the pictures below.
SPS Zone 8 Meeting
On April 16 and 17, 2004 the club hosted a zone meeting for the Society of Physics Students. For more information check out the main page below.
Argonne National Laboratory
On Saturday 03/06 the IUPAS joined physics students from IU South Bend to tour Argonne National Laboratory. We received comprehensive tours of the following labs: Intense Pulsed Neutron Source (IPNS), Argonne Tandem-Linear Accelerator System (ATLAS), and the Advanced Photon Source (APS).
