I got a lot of these ideas at the National SPS meeting I recently attended in Albuquerque, NM. If you have any others, please let me know!

 

 

World Year of Physics Ideas (Outreach)

 

1) Public lecture nights

 

2) Public astronomy nights

 

3) Physics demos

 

*************4) Attend Zone meetings

 

5) Do a research project. SPS offers grants for the society to do a joint project.

 

6) Get an outreach grant. SPS offers $1000 and $10000 grants for 2005 outreach!

 

********7) Be sure to register everything you do with the 2005 website!

 

*************8) Adopt a local public place, a library, grocery store or mall. Put up the 2005 posters (you can download these from the website). Then advertise for your 2005 events, listed above!

 

9) Adopt a high school science/physics club or two-year college to get envolved with your chapter. This draws in undergrad students! Also, high school students can become at-large members through the local SPS chapter.
