1) OUTREACH OPPORTUNITIES

  • Physics Circus
    The Physics Department has sponsored this exciting K-12 outreach program since 1998. The Circus takes CSC equipment on the road to local schools for an action-packed learning experience led by enthusiastic Physics Department graduate students, undergraduate students, and faculty.

  • CSEP Science Center
    The CSC has been a valuable outreach asset at UCSB for over 25 years. The CSC contains a host of hands-on science equipment, allowing students to learn about a variety of topics in an interactive way. For example, there is equipment for student use that demonstrates conservation of momentum, flow of fluids, or principles of electricity.
