Lecture Series

Mondays - Recurring

Our Monday meetings regularly invite professors, physicists, and graduate students to talk about their exciting work in physics and related fields.

National Lab Trips

Autumn & Spring Quarters

The University of Chicago is only about an hour away from two of the most prominent national laboratories in the country. Since 2012, SPS has organized trips to bring students to these labs to experience the experiments and facilities first-hand.

Physics Phormal

Winter Quarter

To unwind from hectic problem sets and exams, SPS hosts an annual Physics "Phormal" open to physics students and friends!

Movie Night


Enjoy relevant documentaries or cheesy science fiction movies accompanied by a professor-led discussion of the physics in the films.



Join us for physics demonstrations on the quad, hosting high school students for breakfast, and other outreach activities throughout the year!
