  • PICUP Spring 2024 Webinar Series: Integrating Computation Throughout the Undergraduate Physics Major at the University of Minnesota

    Shaul Hanany and Sarah McHale, School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Minnesota

    Tuesday, April 23 at 5 pm PDT | 6 pm MDT | 7 pm CDT | 8 pm EDT


    The School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities is integrating computation throughout its physics major courses. Student and faculty surveys, and data analysis and dissemination are supported through an NSF IUSE grant.  We will describe our integration approach, status, some of the material developed, and the data we are collecting to monitor the change process and its impact on students and faculty.

  • Greater Chicagoland PICUP Workshop 2024

    Integrating Computation into Physics Courses
    Date: September 21, 2024
    Location: Lewis University

    Any physics educators from around the Chicagoland area (or anywhere else if you're willing to travel!) that want to energize their physics courses should attend! The scope of this workshop is appropriate for physics teachers from high schools, 2-year colleges, and 4-year colleges and universities. The workshop will include demonstrations and discussions about various aspects of integrating computational activities into physics courses at all levels from introductory to advanced.  

    Registration will open on June 1, 2024!
