Ideas for Kick-Starting your First SPS Meeting
- Do you have a favorite science demonstration? SPS offers up to $300 to deserving chapters who want to embark on outreach projects through the Marsh White Award—applications are due November 15.
- Do you have a great research idea that needs a little start-up money? The Undergraduate Research Award provides as much as $2,000 to chapters that produce effective research proposals—applications are due November 15.
- Are you ready to present some of your research results and/or attend a professional society meeting? SPS sponsors research presentation sessions and small Travel Awards and SPS Reporter Awards at a variety of meetings several times a year. Look for the call for abstracts on your chapter's announcement board in the SPS room in your department.
- Is there an SPS room in your department? There is not an SPS building program (yet!), but we can help you make the case that your department should establish a haven for your chapter. One of the characteristics of successful undergraduate physics programs is a room the students can call their own.
- Enhance your membership drive with these high-quality SPS recruitment items, including colorful posters and brochures.
