Down to Earth Experimental Physics (DEEP) PhD Program


The inaugural year of Down to Earth Experimental Physics (DEEP) PhD Program was an overwhelming success with 30 students enrolled.  The students learned about physical phenomena and devices through hands-on experiments and built devices out of commonly available materials that they took home. This hands-on approach gave students the opportunity to gain a deeper knowledge of the concepts studied by explaining to friends or family members what they did in the most recent session. The meetings took place after school, 3:30-4:30pm, in the Science Lab at Lake Bluff Elementary School in Shorewood, WI.
