My Outreach Plan

As part of the curriculum for Honors Physics 2, a new program being started Fall 2008 at my high school, I plan on taking my students to the University of Pennsylvania for NanoDay@Penn on Wednesday, October 29, 2008.  As stated on their website, "the Nano/Bio Interface Center of the University of Pennsylvania sponsors a day of education and outreach programs for the Penn community as well as regional high schools and neighbors.  Activities include exhibits and demonstrations, laboratory tours, a graduate student research poster session, and high school research projects/science fair.  The day culminates with a NBIC awards program and keynote speech."  Click on the following image to visit their website and find out more about this exciting & educational program:
 


As part of the curriculum for all of my Honors Physics classes [including 3 sections of Honors Physics and 1 section of Honors Physics 2], I plan on inviting all of my honors students to Drexel's High School Open House Program and Annual Kaczmarczik Lecture.  As stated on their website, their High School Open House Program consists of "brief presentations on biophysics, astrophysics, computational physics, etc. Excellent opportunity for high school students to visit our laboratories and meet in person with our internationally recognized researchers."  Additionally, the Annual Kaczmarczik Lecture series "was established in 1995 in honor of Professor Kaczmarczik. It brings to Drexel outstanding scientists to present lectures on topics at the cutting edge of Physics research."  This past spring, I was fortunate enough to have been able to bring a small group of my Honors Physics students to Drexel University to take advantage of this educational program, in which the topic of the 13th Annual Kaczmarczik Lecture was "Time and Einstein in the 21st Century: The Coolest Stuff in the Universe" presented by William D. Phillips.  Click on the following image to visit their website and find out more about this exciting & educational program:
