SPS is in the midst of evaluating and redesigning the Future Faces of Physics Kit. No kits are currently available for distribution.

However, Future Faces of Physics Physpardy can be freely downloaded for use at meetings.


Available free to zone meeting hosts or for use at regional or national physics meetings

From a tactile picture of the moon used by blind students to a book on Einstein and racism, the Future Faces of Physics kit includes many interesting items and surprising stories. The kit is designed to facilitate an open forum where SPS members can talk freely about issues of diversity in a way that is meaningful, but not “touchy-feely.” Details on the contents are given below.

A highlight of the kit is Future Faces of Physics Physpardy, which consists of buzzers, a game board, and everything else that you need to host a game. The questions cover physics topics, famous physicists, the physics community, and more. Check out some of the questions online!

Want a free kit for your next zone meeting? Fill out the request form below and an SPS staff member will be in touch with you shortly.
