  • The UWW Physics department hosted the 2018 Wisconsin Association of Physics Teachers meeting October 25 and 27, 2018.Thank you to everyone who helped make the meeting a success!


  • 2019 Undergraduate Research Day. Once in the fall and once in the spring, students who have been doing research, display posters describing what they studied and what they learned.  For 3 hours, faculty, staff and students meander around the Hamilton Room, stopping to ask for short explanations.  Topics ranged from identifying students at risk of being bullied to malaria treatment for children in the Sudan, to the effects of Red Bull energy drink on rats.  Physics majors and Physics professors were well represented with 13 of the 97 entries involving Physics students or faculty, many of them being a collaboration between departments. Here are descriptions of their projects and pictures.
