Throughout the fall semester, GAP was happy to reach out to the new class of physics graduate students by providing mentoring sessions aimed to present the resources offered at Georgia Tech and some useful insights to help improve their time within our school.
On Saturday, October 14th, volunteers from GAP (along with members of SWIP, SPS, and the Imperial OPA Circus) participated in the second annual Step into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) at the GT MoSE building. This initiative, hosted by GT Junior STEM, exposes K-12 students to the world of STEM and Georgia Tech while also allowing university students to showcase their passions and knowledge pertaining to the matter. The physics expo featured interactive demonstrations in superconductivity, resonance, electromagnetism, mechanics, and fluid dynamics, which engaged students and encouraged them to ask questions about the small wonders of the world around them.
Thanks for coming everyone! We will maintain a monthly basis for those events during the academic year
Update 08/24/17: A big “THANK YOU” to everyone who volunteered and helped distributing glasses across campus!
Update 07/23/17: The event was a great success! Thanks for coming everyone, we hope to get many more social occasions of this kind through the 2017-18 year!
The Graduate Association of Physicists would like to invite you to join us for another brunch on Wednesday, April 26th at noon in the Interaction Zone.
Come and enjoy bagels or waffles with coffee and orange juice while spending time with other physics graduate students and faculty from the department. We hope to see you there!
In the interests of continuing an open forum with our department and promoting cross-disciplinary interaction, please bring an open mind and your suggestions for the upcoming school year!
