Physics Research Building at Ohio State
We are excited to announce that the ASPIRE program will host two, five day sessions in the summer of 2017! Session 1 will be June 5th-9th, and Session 2 will be July 31st – August 4th, from 9 am to 5 pm each day in the Physics Research Building at Ohio State .
The ASPIRE workshop is for high school women who are entering the 10th, 11th or 12th grades. Participants will get their hands on physics equipment and software used by physicists and learn about physics research. In last year’s ASPIRE workshop, participants worked on three separate radio-themed projects where they searched for a hidden transmitter using antennas and oscilloscopes, analyzed real data from the ANITA neutrino experiment in Mathematica, and programmed an Arduino to produce their own mini-radio station.
The workshop will be run for two, five day sessions: June 5-9 (session 1) and July 31-Aug 4 (session 2), from 9am to 5pm each day in the Physics Research Building at Ohio State. Our aim is to give these young women an early chance to get their hands on physics instruments, carry out data analysis, and get a taste of just some of the exciting research happening on the Ohio State campus, especially by young people.
The deadline for submitting applications for session 1 is March 31st.
Please contact workshop director, Professor Amy Connolly (connolly (at) physics.osu.edu) with any questions.
ASPIRE is made possible by generous support of the National Science Foundation through NSF CAREER Award 1255557.
