You are cordially invited to the Creighton University Physics Department’s Physics Field Day 2017! On Saturday, April 1st, you and your team of high school physics students will compete with other local high schools for the prestigious title of “Field Day Champion.” 

This year’s theme is “Ig Nobel,” in honor of Ig Nobel Prizes (parodies of the Nobel Prizes) given out for eccentric or unusual scientific achievements. This award has been presented by a group of Nobel laureates at the Harvard Sanders Theater since 1991. This year, we hope to offer students a chance to understand and learn more about physics with a dose of humor.

If you have any questions, please email SPS President Jacob Shearer <>. More details on the event are also available in the 2017 Physics Field Day Rule Book. We look forward to seeing you this spring!
