Undergraduate Presentations and Awards
Future Physicists Day - April 14, 2008
Poster Session and Presentations
The highlight of the 2008 Future Physicists Day followed lunch when 40 undergraduates shared their research results in oral and poster sessions. The Undergraduate Awards Reception followed the undergraduate sessions. Dr. Judy Franz, Executive Officer of the APS, presented book awards to several undergraduate presenters.
The book awards were provided by American Physical Society, the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR), Physics and Astronomy Division, the APS Division of Nuclear Physics (DNP), the APS Division of Physics of Beams (DPB), the APS Division of Plasma Physics (DPP), the APS Division of Computational Physics (DCOMP), and the APS Division of Astrophysics (DAP).
Funding for the awards reception at the Riverfront Hyatt Hotel was provided by CUR. The Society of Physics Students (SPS) sponsored a rousing round of Physics Jeopardy, following the book awards presentation. Another popular component of the reception was the distribution of door prizes provided by the University of Chicago Press.
