Field Day

2015 Physics Field Day

42nd Annual Physics Field Day

Presented by Creighton University’s Society of Physics Students
Saturday, March 28, 2015 Condensed Matter
Registration starts at 7:30, events start at 8:00 a.m.

You are invited to the Creighton University Physics Department’s Physics Field Day 2015! On Saturday, March 28, you and your team of high school physics students will duke it out with other local high schools for the title of “Field Day Champion.” This year’s theme is “Condensed Matter,” where we will explore physical principles that we encounter on a daily basis—though perhaps we do not think about them explicitly.

If you have any questions, please email SPS President, Katherine Bauer (KatherineBauer@creighton.edu) and she will get back to you as soon possible. Additional details and updates on Physics Field Day can always be found online at:
