Drexel Society of Physics Students Recognized for Outreach Efforts
February 19, 2014 —
Drexel’s Society of Physics Students (SPS) received the American Institute of Physics’ Marsh W. White Award in support of their outreach initiatives with high school students. The Chapter will present “Hollywood Physics 2.0” in Philadelphia area high schools where they will be examining, through interactive demonstrations, the plausibility of various physical phenomena featured in popular movies. This is the 8th consecutive year that the Chapter has been recognized with this award.
They also received the Future Faces of Physics Award, for the second year in a row, for their proposal “Patching the Pipeline.” This award is presented to chapters "to support projects designed to promote physics across cultures." The Chapter will be organizing outreach events at local all-girls high schools.
