2013 UND Physics Day
The UND Physics & Astrophysics Department invites high school teachers and students to attend UND Physics Day on Tuesday, November 12, 2013.
UND Physics Day is aimed at high school juniors and seniors to promote their interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) fields. It's an excellent chance for students to:
- experience the joy of doing science as they explore the world of physics
- interact with faculty at North Dakota's flagship university
- see how undergraduate students can become involved in research
Physics Day activities include hands-on demonstrations and presentations featuring exciting developments and achievements in understanding the world around us. Topics range from rocketry to superconductivity.
Pizza and refreshments will be provided around noon. In addition, one lucky teacher will win a drawing for a set of Celestron 7x35 binoculars.
