Physics Club Hovercraft 'Workshop'
Physics Club members met during the Fall 2006 semester in their spare time to construct a simple hovercraft. Pictured at left is previous Club Vice President Chaz Miller obviously enjoying the ride on a cushion of air. The Physics Club debuted the hovercraft at the Halloween Carnival the evening of October 27th, 2006. Plans are already being made to construct a larger, fully-steerable, gas-powered model.
Invited Lecture by Dr. Brenda Winnewisser, October 20th, 2006
Dr. Brenda Winnewisser delivered a lecture entitled "Hedwig Kohn, Albert Einstein and the 20th Century" as part of our celebration of the World Year of Physics. The event took place in BSC 343 on Thursday October 20th, 2006 from 4-5p.m. The lecture was a fascinating look at the culture of physics and the larger German society from the turn of the 20th century through the Holocaust, and at how these factors impacted the life of one of the few practising women physicists of the time.
Participation in the Wonders of the World (WOW) Program, October 12-21, 2006
Physics Club members Cory Williams, Danielle Hutter and Charles Miller participated in the Wonders of the World (WOW) program in conjunction with Dr. Paul Szalay in the Chemistry Department. WOW is an interactive science education program targeting elementary school children. Hands-on experiments are designed to expose children to the wonders of science and foster scientific interest at an early age. Club members served as volunteers at a local elementary school in Cambridge, OH.
