"It might surprise you, but physics majors DO try to have a good time" - Former President Will Fischer
FUN STUFF WE'VE BEEN UP TO!!
For our outreach activities please goto the outreach page.
Our goal, as always, is to expose young
members to physics and enlighten the older members. Thanks to
the professors for giving us their time!
In honor of the cartoonist Rube Goldberg, a contest is held to build complicated
contraptions that perform simple tasks.
Annual Picnic at Wildwood Park
Despite forgetting the matches, not having enough charcoal, and
killer bees that love orange pop, a great time was had by all. Due to bad
weather predictions our 2003 and 2004 picnics were held in McMaster.
Inspired by the APS photo contest we held our own.
Planetarium Shows -
These great shows are a nice relaxing way to learn about
astronomy. Check out their webpage www.rpbo.utoledo.edu
Pizza Parties -
What would a physics major be without pizza and soda!
Movie Night -
What better to do on a Friday night than to congregate into a lecture hall and watch
movies on a projection system.
Retro Game Night -
Sometimes instead of Movie Nighttm we get together and play
classic video games, on the large screen in MH 4009, and board games.
Argonne National Lab -
A trip to Argonne was held February 2001. We toured the Advanced
Photon Source, a neutron physics lab, and the ATLAS accelerator.
Chicago Trip -
In March, 2002, we went to the Science and Industry Museum and to the Field Museum.
Neil Armstrong Air and Space
In the late spring of 2003 a group of us went to pay homage to Neil
Armstrong in Wapakoneta, Ohio.
Stephen Hawking Lecture -
On October 13th 2003 something amazing happened! Dr. Stephen Hawking was awarded
the Michelson Morley Award by Case Western Reserve University. Five SPS members
attended the lecture he gave at Severence Hall.
