Six Randolph College physics and engineering majors attended the 2022 Sigma Pi Sigma Physics Congress (PhysCon) last week in Washington, D.C. The gathering is the largest of its kind for undergraduate students in the world.
PhysCon brings together physics and astronomy students, alumni, and faculty members for three days of frontier physics, interactive professional development workshops, and networking.
It is supported by the American Institute of Physics and hosted by Sigma Pi Sigma, the physics honor society.
This year’s theme was “100 Years of Momentum.”
During the conference, Erin Schriever ’23 presented research she conducted with Peter Sheldon, Randolph’s Charles A. Dana Professor of Physics & Engineering.
Students also have the opportunity to tour facilities at the forefront of science and technology and explore graduate programs, summer research opportunities, and career options.Tags: physics
