Physics and Astronomy Outreach

Welcome to the Wayne State University Physics & Astronomy Outreach Web Page!


We invite you to view the broad range of outreach activities we engage in and hope you gain some sense of the dedication and spirit our department faculty, staff and students bring to this effort. 

The Department of Physics and Astronomy has a rich history in the area of public outreach.  Over the years, we have run summer camps for middle school science students, held open houses for high school students and their families, worked actively with the Detroit Metropolitan Area Physics Teachers organization, and presented our dazzling Phantastic Physics Phenomena to K-12 students visiting our Wayne State campus. 

In addition, visitors of all ages find inspiration and delight as they explore the cosmos in the WSU Planetarium!

Members of our faculty regularly volunteer to share their excitement about physics and astronomy with the general public at Detroit Cultural Center institutions such as the Detroit Science Center, at science teacher conferences, and with students at schools and math and science centers across the metropolitan area. 

We hope you enjoy browsing our page and using the links we have provided.  Feel free to get in touch with us and share your ideas about science outreach activities. And please take the opportunity to come to our department to see why we love what we do!
