UC Merced Physics students, postdocs, and faculty members are actively engaged in science outreach in the Merced region, and in sharing their most exciting research findings with the public through news media.
Summer 2020. David Strubbe, Ajay Gopinathan, Kinjal Dasbiswas and Daniel Beller and their graduate students delivered online workshops for K-12 students and teachers through summer programs organized by CalTeach and CCBM. These included experimental demonstrations and computational modules that illustrate basic principles of physics.
David Strubbe, Jing Xu, and Daniel Beller shared their scientific work and career paths with local area 6th-9th graders at Merced County's 13th annual Dinner with A Scientist event hosted by UC Merced.
