Get Ready for the 2018 SPS Zone 4 Meeting!

Zone meetings bring together students from SPS chapters within geographical zones. They are a fun and effective way for undergraduates to meet other students, present their research, and interact with practicing scientists.

The Zone 4 Meeting will take place April 21-22, 2018 at The University of Maryland campus, where we will be holding a "Celebration of Sustainability," filled with fun and exciting events. Some of these include: Workshops hosted by the UMD Physics Makerspace, Lab Tours focused on green energy and sustainability projects, a Student Poster Session, an Outreach Session from Towson SPS, a genuine Farm to Table Dinner, an On-Campus Sleep-In, and more!
