The Society of Physics Students at New Mexico State University has been an expansive promotional group for Physics, and all things science and engineering. We take great pride in our outreach programs for local high schools, our involvement in extracurricular activities around the university, as well as, promoting our own members and inspiring them to be more involved and to reignite the passion of science and discovery back into their hearts.
Physics is not a simple subject to understand, however it is one whose phenomena are awesome to observe and we do our best to convey our curiosity onto the future students of the next generation. By showing them, first hand – the simple, yet complex experiments we are shown in our introductory courses; experiments like the double slit experiment, a magnet falling down a copper tube, or a simple rudimentary hovercraft being a few examples of the experiments we bring to the high schools we visit.
Over the past three years, The Society of Physics Students at NMSU has been becoming more active within our off campus community. We understand how important it is for us to reach out to our community and the youth around us. A little over two and a half years ago SPS at NMSU went to work to create an outreach program. This program consisted of visiting local schools, or having local schools visit us to demo experiments and get the youth excited about science. This program has been every growing to include more than just schools but also organizations that promote the advancement of our youth.
