MOR Stem Night

Calendar of notable events

Keep an eye out for these other resources provided by the department/college:

Department Colloquium

The physics department puts on lectures Fridays 4-5 (right before our meeting) in Barnard 103. These lectures are about current research going on, either by our own faculty or by captivating speakers brought in by the department. This is a great opportunity to see what a career in research looks like. See the department's website for more information.

Currently the department is still working on ironing out the details. Keep an eye out for when the ball gets rolling!

OpTeC Colloquium

If you are interested in optics or new quantum technology, keep an eye out for the OpTeC lectures. The meetings are weekly Thursday 4:10 digitally. Quite a few of our physics faculty are already on the list of lectures this semester. I would urge you to visit at least one of the lectures to get a taste of what laser physics looks like in engineering. Check out OpTeC's schedule.

RelAstro Lectures

If you are interested in gravity or solar physics, keep an eye out for the RelAstro lectures. The meetings are weekly Monday 2:10 in Roberts 209. I would urge you to visit at least one to get a taste of what gravity and solar physics looks like in research. Check out RelAstro's schedule.

Currently the department is still working on ironing out the details. Keep an eye out for when the ball gets rolling!

TAMIA/Women+

TAMIA (Towards a More Inclusive Astronomy) and W+iP (Women+ in Physics) work hard to tackle the hot topics around inclusion and systemic issues within our department. In the past, the groups have worked with SPS to bring information from a grad student perspective. See the W+iP website for more info.

Honors Presents

The honors college puts together lectures and other opportunities primarily for honors students, however they don't check attendance at the door. Some of these lectures are valuable to physics majors, such as conversations on sustainability and nuclear energy. Keep an eye out for cool opportunities on their schedule.

While Honors Presents is currently running, their online schedule is not up to date. Check the link to see if that has change, but your other option is to ask to be put on the email list by the Honors College or send us an email and we can check for recent opportunities in our email.
