The Department of Physics at Seattle University is proud to announce its fifth annual PhysFest! This weekend workshop will introduce high school seniors to the world of physics at SU. Participants will stay with an SU student, meet the SU physics faculty, and complete interesting experiments in our well-equipped laboratories. SU PhysFest 2014 will take place on Friday evening, February 28, 2014 and all day Saturday, March 1, 2014.
To indicate your interest in PhysFest, please fill out the Interest Form. Participants must also apply for admission to Seattle University by January 15th, 2014. We will select invitiees from those who have completed both the interest form and their SU admissions application after that time. (An invitation to participate in PhysFest does not necessarily imply admission to Seattle University.)
Friday evening, participants will meet their student hosts, then enjoy a reception and dinner with the physics faculty and students followed by a brief orientation and tour of the physics department and facilities. Saturday is a packed day of physics activities featuring six to eight experiments across a variety of subjects, with breakfast, lunch, and snacks provided. The official workshop ends around 4:45 pm, but participants may arrange to stay with their host student an extra night to explore the rich cultural and social experiences offered in this Pacific-rim city.
