Society of Physics Students Host Research Conference, Nov 2

Undergraduate Anika Friedman presents her summer research work at the 2018 SPS Research Conference

The Society of Physics Students (SPS), an undergraduate student organization within Physics & Astronomy, hosts its 10th annual research conference on Saturday, November 2, from 9:00 am to 11:00 am in Clippinger Laboratories 194. The event is free and open to the public.

Six presenters will provide an overview of their individual summer internship projects ranging from topics such as the physics of sound and musical instruments, the nuclear physics that occur in neutron star bursts, to following the paths of particles from hadron collisions like those that occur in the CERN’s Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland.

Professors from the Department attend the conference and provide feedback, as well as choose the first place winner for best presentation.
