Physics Outreach Project
Interested in having POP visit your school or event?
Science is our Superpower! What's Yours?!
Physics Outreach Project represents the science-education community outreach of the Physics Dept. at Binghamton University. POP implements entertaining science programs to groups of all ages, both on and off campus. In particular, we offer stimulating, highly interactive after-school programs to elementary school students that traditionally have little exposure to physics concepts.
Beyond the educational benefit to the audience, POP provides a great teaching and learning experience for our volunteer presenters, who enjoy the enthusiastic personalities and high energy level of our audiences. POP presenters are volunteers recruited from the entire Binghamton University student population, both science and non-science majors. All volunteers are given the necessary safety and content training before each program, to ensure a safe and effective presentation.Check out our YouTube Channel and Instagram
