The Department of Physics at Simon Fraser University is pleased to invite female students in grades 9 and 10 to our Girls Exploring Physics workshop on Saturday, November 18, 2017 at our Burnaby Campus.
This FREE workshop includes two hands-on activities:
The Power of Water (New!) and The Quirks of Quarks.
We will end with a discussion of the career opportunities available to students who study physics at the university level. During the lunch provided to the participants they will have a chance to interact informally with women physics faculty and students from SFU, play with some fun physics demos and take a tour of the new Trottier Observatory and Science Courtyard.
Information on how to register is posted on the Girls Exploring Physics website:
Students should sign up on an individual basis.
