Physics Undergraduate Summer Research 2023
The Research Program has weekly Faculty Research Presentations and/or Professional Development Workshops. Except for the Orientation, which will be held on Monday, June 26 at 9:00 AM, all other events will be held in person and are scheduled to take place Wednesdays at 9:00 AM in Physics and Astrophysics Building, Room 102/103. During weeks where there is a Faculty Research Presentation, it will start at 9:00 AM. If there is no Faculty Research Presentation, the Professional Development Workshop will begin at 9:00 AM. All programs, unless otherwise noted, will conclude by 10:30am. All Research participants are required to attend and participate in these presentations and workshops.
- Orientation will be on Monday, June 26, 9:00 - 10:20am in Physics and Astrophysics Building, room 102/103.
- We will hold mid-summer check-in meetings during week 5. Sign up and Mid Quarter Reflections survey links to be added later in the summer.
- Students will give a brief (~6-minute) presentation about their research at the end of the program (rather than presenting a poster at an in-person event). Presentations will be held on Thursday or Friday of week 10 of the program.
SCHEDULE FOR SUMMER 2023 - Details such as titles of talks will be added, but event timing is fixed.
All events will be held in person in the Physics and Astrophysics Building, room 102/103 and will begin at 9:00am Wednesday morning unless noted.
