We do all sorts of activities! Some of our outreach events include participating in Girl/Boy Scout STEM fairs, presenting science topics at elementary schools, and helping the public look through telescopes on the roof of Van Allen. We also have other "in-house" events like game nights, faculty dinners, and undergraduate colloquia.
If you want more information on any of these events, feel free to check out our events page or contact us using the form above!
Great question! Getting involved in undergraduate research is a fantastic way to learn what your interests in physics & astronomy are, as well as prepare for graduate school or industry jobs. We are very fortunate within our department to have a lot of opportunities for undergraduate research.
