What is gravity? How are ultrasounds used in medicine? What jobs can physicists do? If you are a teacher or run a non-profit
organization, now your students and affiliates can get an answer to these questions from real scientists at your institution!
Department of Physics and Astronomy
of the University of Mississippi
brings scientists to your school or organization to give talks
about science and meet your community. Presentations range from simple talks and hands-on demonstrations for young children to TED-like
talks on current research in physics.
Invite a scientist!
The list below contain names and presentation topics of UM scientists who are willing to visit organizations in North Mississippi and
nearby region. If you are an educator or belong to a non-profit organization in these areas, you may
to arrange for a visit
of one of these scientists. While it may not be possible to honor all requests, we will strive to meet any and all of them. If the
speaker of your choice is not available, we will try and arrange for an alternative speaker.
