RIVERSIDE, Calif. — The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of California, Riverside will host its annual open house on April 12, 2014 from 1–4:30 p.m., allowing visitors to campus to have one-on-one interactions with faculty and students and get to know all about the cutting-edge research the department conducts.

The annual open house will be held in the Physics Building as well as outside in the adjacent courtyard. Parking in Lot 30 is free.

Presentations that showcase the research being done in the department will be held in the lobby and classrooms of the Physics Building.  The presentations will each be about 20 minutes long.  Presentations on astrophysics, cosmology and condensed matter physics will start at 2 p.m., take place in Room 3041 (the Reading Room), and be given twice; the talk on high energy physics will be ongoing in the lobby.

Fun, hands-on demonstrations will take place in the courtyard and inside the Physics Building.  The demonstrations, which in the past have been very popular with children, will cover a variety of topics, including electricity, magnetism and sound/music.

The open house is on the same day as Highlander Day.
