Physics faculty and students celebrated the end of the Spring 2019 semester at the TA appreciation luncheon. Teaching assistants, graders and tutors enjoyed an end-of- semester lunch at Fuzzy’s on Dead Day. This outing also serves as a chance to take a break during the fierce studying before the final exams. Luisa Velasco was chosen for the Outstanding TA Award for the semester. At the TA appreciation luncheon at the end of the fall 2019 semester, John Lowrie was given the Outstanding TA Award.
Physics Majors caroled on the street after having their fill of food and merriment at the annual Christmas Party at Dr. Olenick’s home.
Physics students and faculty relaxed and visited at the annual Spring Picnic held at Dr. Hicks’ residence.
One of the highlights of the year, students, faculty and alumni participated in interactive physics demonstrations during the 3rd annual interactive physics demos for kids (and adults) on the Friday evening of Alumni Family Weekend. Clockwise, from top left: Experiments and demonstrations range from conservation of energy in collisions, electromagnetic motors, Bernoulli’s principle, energy of sound waves, and crowd favorite, conservation of angular momentum on a turntable.
