Physics and Astronomy Club (PAC)

Academic - LAS


We provide undergraduate and graduate students interested in physics and astronomy with reference materials, work stations, support, and just plain old fun. We also organize events to teach K-12 students, and the wider community about physics, astronomy, science literacy, and the college experience.

Description of Regular Meetings/Activities

ISUPAC meets every other Monday at 6:00pm in our club room located in one of the basements in Physics Hall. There are signs directing people to the club room but you can always e-mail one of the club officers to get directions. We hold demo shows for local schools/libraries/etc to bring physics and astronomy closer to the public. We also participate in science nights at local schools and assist with The Planetarium Group at ISU's planetarium nights.

Description of Special Events

Every spring break we plan a club trip to a voted upon location that is of educationally oriented. In the past this has included FermiLab, Argonne National Laboratory, and various science museums.
