SPS Chapter named Outstanding Chapter for 2019

We are proud to announce that the Society of Physics Students National Council has awarded the University of Maine SPS Chapter as a 2019 Distinguished Chapter for their efforts in the 2018-2019 academic year.

This is the 3rd year in a row that this honor has been awarded to UMaine’s SPS chapter.  It’s a testament to the students’ dedication to the field.  We appreciate all the work the group does on and off campus:  study sessions before exams; getting K-12 students excited about science at demonstration shows and the Mainely Physics Road Show at events like the Engineering Expo and Portland Public Schools STEM Expo; organizing social events in the department like the fall picnic and the holiday party; and generally creating and sustaining a sense of community in the department, especially among the physics and engineering physics majors.

All chapter award winners will be recognized on the Outstanding Chapter Award page in the coming weeks.
