Physics on the Road Grant Recipients

 
 

A vital part of World Year of Physics 2005 was an infusion of funds to Physics on the Road programs across the United States. Many of these local touring programs currently exist in physics departments across the country, but the lack of funding and external (and, sadly, internal) recognition limits their scope to small numbers of visits in localized areas. Even so, these dedicated groups, composed largely of volunteers, manage to reach thousands of people, the majority of which are children, each year. For 2005, we awarded 20 $10,000 grants to be used for program supplies, vehicle maintenance, room and board for participants and other costs associated with performing physics demonstrations. These grants allowed the selected programs to expand their reach in the community both in terms of the number of students visited and their geographical range, including those in rural or remote areas not currently serviced by comparable programs.

Congratulations to all 20 of our World Year of Physics 2005 grant recipients.
