While we do work hard here in the physics department, we also play hard. We have multiple activities going on every semester. We have Wii parties every other week. We have at least one big picnic every year. We do a liquid nitrogen ice cream social every semester. We also have the Annual Physics Can Roll.
Last year we started an outreach project where we helped Luling Junior High students learn some robotics. SPS students mentored 12 students on how to program, build, and test robots to follow multiple mazes.
We also have our induction dinner in the spring for students inducted to Sigma Pi Sigma, SPS’s national physics honor society.
National members of SPS (and Sigma Pi Sigma) are eligible for scholarships. Wako Bungula ‘13 was awarded a scholarship from SPS for the 2012-2013 school year. Talitha Muehlbrad ‘11 and Curtis Lee ’11 were awarded Sigma Pi Sigma honors awards in the 2010-2011 school year.
