Physics Open House 2000


Physics Day at Tate Lab. Cool demos, lab tours, snacks, Physics Force and more...

Since the role of physics is very broad, the study and research methods learned as physics major provide an excellent foundation for further work in any science or technology. Students who have completed an undergraduate degree in physics can go on to careers in research, industry, education, medicine and the business professions. Students who are considering physics as a possible major are urged to come to our Departmental Open House on Thursday, November 9. You can learn what it is like to be a physics major, explore opportunities for undergraduates in our laboratories, and hear from recent graduates out in the "real world". It all culminates in a fun physics show at the end.
