SPS members brought our Department telescopes out for a weekend stargazing camping trip near Red Feather Lakes, Colorado.

The Society of Physics Students (SPS) is a professional association explicitly designed for students. Membership, through collegiate chapters, is open to anyone interested in physics. The only requirement for membership is that you be interested in physics. Besides physics majors, our members include majors in chemistry, computer science, engineering, geology, mathematics, medicine, and other fields.

SPS Denver operates on the Auraria Campus, and is a combined effort between students, staff, and faculty from the University of Colorado Denver and Metropolitan State University of Denver.  This unique group works with local high schools and industry partners to foster innovation, research experience, and career path opportunities.
