SPS SOCK (Science Outreach Catalyst Kit) Intern
Society of Physics Students
Noah Johnson Final Presentation.pdfAbstract:
Outreach is a fundamental part of the Society of Physics Students (SPS) and the most common activity chapters do. Being the SOCK Intern, my responsibilities not only covered the SOCK program, but a whole range of outreach. In this talk I will outline new physics demonstrations for students of all ages, my work around the acoustic based SOCK (expanded) and the Psi* Program, which formally joined SPS as part of the outreach toolkit. We will go over other side projects as well, including physics jeopardies and running the SPS Demo Competition.
Hello everyone! My name is Noah, and I am the SOCK intern for summer 2021! I am a huge advocate of science education and outreach so having the opportunity to develop awesome demonstration kits for students of all ages is super exciting. I spent 2.5 years at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City and I loved every second of it, so I know how to teach kids (and people of all ages really) about science and I can't wait to be contributing to more of that this summer. I'm a rising junior at NYU studying physics with a minor in education and the goal to become a science educator after graduation.
When I'm not studying you can often find me reading, playing video games, learning about animals, trying to learn new instruments, cooking, and baking. I love browsing new recipes and trying out different styles of bread. So far my favorite loaf I've made has to be the rosemary focaccia.
I can't wait to work with everyone at SPS this summer!
