The Society of Physics Students at Creighton University is excited to invite you and your students to Creighton’s annual High School Physics Field Day! Field Day is a friendly competition and learning experience for local high schools. We will be hosting this year's Field Day on Saturday, April 6th and hope that you can join us!

Generally, schools send team(s) of about 4-5 students and a teacher to compete in a variety of events. Previous years’ events included a quiz bowl, building a catapult, laser aiming, dropping an egg multiple stories, and many others. This year’s theme is Forms of Energy and will have new, fun events! Details with the exact events will be released soon.
 
Registration is $15 per team, plus $3 per student, which includes both breakfast and lunch for students and faculty. Please RSVP using this form:

Modeling Ultra Peripheral Collisions

Joey Butterworth

Physics Department, Creighton University

Through the use of Monte Carlo methods, we are able to simulate electromagnetic interactions of nuclei that traveling by one another--Also known as ultra peripheral collisions. This presentation will give a brief look into Monte Carlo methods and how they are applied to the simulation of ultra peripheral collisions.

The Nuclear Science Merit Badge

Lauren Dwyer

Physics Department, Creighton University

Each March, Creighton University hosts a workshop for local Boy Scouts to learn the uses, applications, and basics of nuclear science. As part of outreach efforts, a webpage has been created that serves as a comprehensive resource for the Nuclear Science Merit Badge for all scouts nationally. The webpage has several features that help a scout complete the badge.
