MIT Society of Physics Students


Outreach is a key aspect of SPS, as it allows us to excite others about the joys of physics. Both our group and individual members are actively involved in physics outreach. Many of our members go back to high schools in their hometown communities to offer presentations on physics, with a short demo, lecture, and description of physics in college. As a group, we recently started visiting local middle schools and doing demos for students, both in class and after school. While our last demos were on line spectra, gyroscopes, and various astronomical topics, we are capable of doing a range of demos.

If you're a current SPS member, you can see previous presentations here to get an idea of what they're like.

If you are a teacher in the greater Boston area who would like to have us in your classroom, please write to us (mailto sps-exec). Some of our demonstration guides are found below:
