Additional Information: Every year, MTU SPS does one or more physics outreach activities to the community and the campus. Our three main activities are Family Physics Night, Science Fair Festival, and Spring Fling. More information can be found on http://sps.students.mtu.edu/wordpress/outreach/ .

We are very interested in doing more events like these if anyone is looking for a group to provide the service.
