Advanced Physics Summer Program
This program, designed for high school students (rising 9th-12th graders), will include awesome experiences you can use in the future! Participants will get to solder, code, learn about career options, and more. With interesting research, speakers, lab tours, STEM professional development, and networking activities the Advanced Physics Summer Program is a blast.
The Advanced Physics Summer Program jumps into the exciting world of modern physics. Participants learn about topics ranging from relativity to antimatter, biophysics, quantum mechanics, physical uncertainty, quantum computing and more. The program is filled with hands-on lab activities, visits to cutting-edge research labs, discussions with professors and graduate students who conduct modern physics research and a project to make the discussions of modern topics tangible. Students are introduced to topics that they will likely not be offered in their high school classes, from the thought experiments of Einstein to current applications in code-breaking.
Since its inception, over 1,700 students have attended this program. Past participants have gone on to become physicists, engineers, doctors, computer specialist and more. The program has drawn students from Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C. Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and all over the world.
