Physics for All
We are the Society of Physics Students at the beautiful UCSC campus.
Take a look around and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
Our meetings for Winter 2020 are Fridays 4-5pm in CfAO.
We here at SPS believe a diverse community is essential for success.
Every member was inspired to learn more about the world around us. Whether it be by a dedicated educator or a wonderfully produced television broadcast.
Now that we’re all here, we want to support each other as well as the future generation of scientists.
Come to Weekly Meetings
Get to know your fellow scientists. We have meetings nearly every week on topics ranging from making a CV to having a stargazing night. Snacks and drinks are always provided.
Become an Outreach Volunteer
You can get involved today by becoming a Volunteer. Sign up to visit local K-12 schools and inspire a curiosity for the sciences. We conduct lab demonstrations in classrooms and explain the physics behind them.
Join the Mentorship Program
It can be difficult to navigate the field of physics but there’s plenty of ways to find the right help. As a member of our mentorship program you have the chance to guide others or find a guide yourself.

After everyone had their fair share of delicious Costco pizza and snack we all took our sits for the discussion to come. One of our veryContinue reading “Talking About What it Takes to Become a Researcher”
Become a Volunteer
Our volunteers visit local K-12 schools aiming to inspire students to pursue science as a study and career. Every participant learns to properly conduct demonstrations and clearly explain the fundamental laws behind them.
