LEAP (Launch Your Excellent Adventures with Physics)

Are you, or do you know, a high school girl interested in this question: “What is physics, and how is it used to both understand the world around us, and fuel the inventions of the future?”

Join us on Friday, August 9, 2019 to investigate these questions inside the labs of working scientists at NC State.

Possible workshop topics, to be organized by students, researchers, and faculty from the Physics Department: capturing subatomic particles, solar spectra, astrophysics in the computer, atomic force microscopy of DNA, programming arduinos, organic electronics, microfluidics, and more!

Did you know that students who take a physics course in high school are more likely to succeed in their pursuit of STEM careers?

Sign-up HERE to spend a day exploring physics, via NC State’s Science House.
