Breaking Boundaries Event

Share This:

The Physics Congress 2022 will feature an event called “Breaking Boundaries” focused on promoting SPS chapters from across the country. The goal is for students to visit with and learn from one another, while also finding ways to improve their own chapter. Each chapter has its own unique culture, and the aim of this session is to have them be able to share ideas and items that other chapters can take to their institution.

Activities that will take place simultaneously during the “Breaking Boundaries” event include chapters showcasing their accomplishments and advice, Blackout Bingo, and a sticker exchange and T-shirt design contest.

Chapter Showcase

Chapters are encouraged to display items that represent their chapter and its culture during the chapter showcase event. Examples of items and ideas that can be presented are given below. Upon registration for this event, chapters will be assigned a dedicated table space. Concrete items and activities ideas to inspire other chapters are encouraged such as outreach manuals, fundraising guides, pins, stickers, stamps, t-shirts, etc. 

Register your Chapter for a table at the Chapter Showcase HERE!

Ideas for your Chapter Showcase

Blackout Bingo

To encourage students to network with as many attendees as possible, each person will have a bingo card to fill out. Student who fill out all squares will be entered into a raffle!

T-shirt Design Contest

T-shirts are one of the many ways that chapters can show off their pride. Show off your chapter's best T-shirt design and everyone is invited to vote for their favorite!

Sticker Exchange

Chapters are encouraged to design and bring their favorite chapter pride sticker to share with other schools in this event! The number of stickers your chapter brings will be the number of stickers you could swap with other SPS chapters. 

We hope that by encouraging and rewarding different forms of chapter participation, students will be excited to show off their chapters and learn more about what other chapters across the country are doing.
