Throughout the year, GPS hosts numerous events to help the physics graduate students grow as scientists and as a community. We host an annual conference with a poster competition and presentations by a select number of students. We perform public outreach events for K-12 schools and science fairs in the form of physics demo shows. We also host professional development events such as resumé workshops, and social events to foster a sense of community within the physics department.
Donations would enable GPS to expand our current level of professional development support for graduate students as well as develop new exciting physics demos to help inspire future generations of physicists.
