The Society of Physics Students (SPS), an undergraduate student organization within Physics & Astronomy, hosts its 8th annual SPS Research Conference on Saturday, March 25, from 9:00 am to noon in Walter Hall 145. The event is free and open to the public.

Conference organizer Zach Bernens (Physics ’17) says the event offers the students an opportunity to practice and develop key communication skills that will serve students throughout their careers.

Ten presenters will provide an overview of their individual summer internship research projects, which range in scale from supernovae to solar thermal application of electrospinning fibers.

SPS President Brandon Coleman (Astrophysics ’18) explains, “Being a presenter allows us to relay the exciting knowledge we have learned and our experience to our peers. Students in the audience learn from the presenters and expand their knowledge in this wonderful field of science. The conference is really worth attending and being a part of.”
