Check out some of the activities and events we've done together this Fall on our Flickr page. We are a tightly-knit community, as you can see from the photos.
Every other Monday we gather to share a home-cooked meal (provided by one of the physics faculty), then we do some sort of activity or solve a physics puzzle or build something dangerous or colorful.
In the recent past we have made trashcan-sized smoke rings that travel 100-feet or more, created a 12-foot long flaming Kundt's tube with propane feeding in one end and Led Zeppelin in the other, decorated the campus with several hundred LED throwies, shot ping-pong balls through soda cans, and generally had fun while causing only small amounts of mayhem. We've had alums come back and talk about life-after-Gordon-physics, and they are always invited to join us for dinner.
