Undergraduates Reach Out

Junior physics major Johnny Hayes has been actively participating in our physics outreach programs. Recently, he worked with Professors John Cerne and Serdar Gozpinar to organize an outreach event at Starpoint Middle School in Pendleton, New York. Johnny Hayes and fellow physics undergraduates Robert Waelder, Tyler Barrett, and Eric Oliverio entertained and enthralled the about 80 students, age 5-15 years, at Starpoint Middle School. Details of their event can be found in the Spring 2017 newsletter. Some photos are below.
