What is SPS?
The Society of Physics Students at North Carolina State University (SPS) is an organization dedicated to helping undergraduate physicists complete their degree and encouraging the public to take a greater interest in physics. SPS organizes social and academic events for our members, such as inviting exciting speakers and hosting movie nights. SPS also likes to get as many people as possible interested in physics by participating and organizing outreach, especially with local K-12 schools.
SPS regularly invite speakers, ranging from fellow undergrads to outside speakers, to talk about their research and physics outside the classroom.
SPS regularly organize social events like game and movie nights for undergrads to take a break from physics and get to know each other better outside of the classroom.
Washington Elementary School STEM Night
Every Spring SPS attends the Washington Magnet Elementary School's Science Night and participates in the events of the night. We bring demonstrations, like liquid nitrogen and a tesla coil, to show how fun physics is to children and families of the school. The kids, parents, and SPS members all have a great time doing this event!
How Can I Join?
If you’re a physics major you’re already a member of SPS, just keep an eye out for emails from us at your NCSU email address. If you’re not a physics major but still really like physics send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you on the mailing list.
