The Society of Physics Students (SPS) is open to students in any academic major interested in physics. The club hosts astronomy outings, designs rockets, engineers projects and organizes field trips.
Senior and SPS President Thomas Gehrman, a physics major with minors in mathematics and astronomy, said the club has helped him further develop his skills in physics and build on what he’s learning in the classroom.
Gehrman said the club has a very welcoming and fun atmosphere, and hosts several events such as discussions, lunar eclipse viewing and jeopardy night. The group is working on launching a rocket later this year.
“We want to show the world that physics isn’t just really tough…it’s fun,” Gehrman said.
