The Worlds of Physics Publix Lecture series was establish about twenty years ago based on the success of the Astronomy Open Nights Public Lectures series which has been running since 1973. In this series Stony Physicists explain topics in physics or related to physics of interest to a wide audience.
We typically have four lectures each semester. For further information or to have your name added to the mailing list (postal or e-mail) contact the Department of Physics and Astronomy at (631) 632-8100, or send e-mail to Nathan Leoce-Schappin.
Do try to be a little early if you can. The increasing popularity of this series has seen the lecture hall full on occasion. Call the Department at the number above before 4 pm to warn us of your requirements.
Worlds of Physics provides attendance certification for New York State teachers wishing to apply for in-service credit. Among these programs you can accumulate hours of lecture credit each year to apply toward your school district's program. Policies on in-service credit are set by school boards and you should check with your administration concerning the details of the local program.
