Boys Scouts Visit 2019

The Boys Scouts of America visited the Department of Physics in order to attain their nuclear science badge. The Society of Physics Students planned and operated the entirety of the day with some help of their advisors, Dr. Robert Cooper and Dr. Marc Schlegel. We also want to mention Vice President Jorge Garcia for taking charge of the event and planning the visit.

The scouts needed to have completed their packet that included building an electroscope, visiting a nuclear research lab, building models of isotopes, and much more! All 20 scouts that attended were successful in acquiring their badges.
