Celebrating at the end-of-year picnic (2012).

The Alliance of Science (comprised of the Biology, Chemistry, Electronics, Engineering, and Physics and Astronomy clubs) celebrated science with a picnic April 27th. There was a huge turnout with many students, faculty, and staff in attendance. The food was good and plentiful, while the basketball and frisbee was fun though a bit hot. The Bio Club president even learned how to use a grill! Join us next time!
The last star party of the semester was a wonderful success. The hot dogs and s'mores were quite delicious as we glimpsed at Jupiter and four of its moons. Other sights included Saturn, several brilliant star clusters, a few globular clusters, and a galaxy or two. This was the last star gazing event of the semester. Next semester will hold more wonders of the universe. Look to the skies!
The Physics Club t-shirts are ready! Talk to Mariette to pick up your shirts. Wear them to the end-of-year picnic! Check out the picture of the final design: picture
The final field trip of the semester to Great America's Physics Day was again a success. While not too much physics was analyzed, students enjoyed the rides and excitement of the park. The lines were exceptionally short if not nonexistent, and the heat wasn't too bad. All in all, a good time was had by all.
Of course, we are the best club on campus. We are, after all, physics nerd and enginerd wannabes. As a testimony to our greatness:

We would like to wish the Bio Club luck this semester as they are certain to need it. We heard they are "improving".
One final event of the semester: the end-of-year picnic. Join the Physics Club in celebrating the end of another year by joining the feast and frivolity that is this long-standing tradition.
No more meetings until the Fall semester begins. New meeting times and places will be announced at the beginning of the new semester.
