Winter 2016 Events

Hello physics students!

Tomorrow we will have our first event at Griffith Observatory. If you would like to come, please sign up for carpooling in the club room (8-209). Come to the club room at 5 pm tomorrow to leave for the observatory. Make sure to bring your student ID so we can get you a student ticket. While we’re there, everyone will be allowed to look at whatever exhibits they want, and then we’ll watch the planetarium show together. Afterward, we will visit a nearby restaurant.

During the week of February 1st, we will have our first Science Cafe of the year, featuring Dr. Kai Lam from our Physics Department as our speaker. Please come for free food and to hear Dr. Lam speak.

If you are interested in visiting SpaceX, please make sure to sign up! There will be a sign up sheet posted on the club room fridge. We plan to make the visit sometime during week seven of the quarter.

Finally, our annual camping trip will be at the beginning of spring break! This year, we will be visiting Zion, Utah. There are only 36 spots available, so please make sure to sign up. This sign up sheet will also be posted on the fridge. It’s $35 to attend this year, so make sure to pay to secure your spot. We will be leaving on the Friday of finals week and will stay for 2 to 3 days.

We look forward to seeing everyone at our next meeting on the fourth of February!

If you pay you dues now it will go to things like reimbursements for carpooling, food for the camping trip, pizza at movie nights, t-shirts etc. We still need your help to keep having all of the fun events! Please pay your dues!!!
