Society of Physics Students
SPS is sponsored by the American Institute of Physics and is the national student professional society in physics. It is a chapter-based society that exists to help students transform themselves into contributing members of the professional community. In addition to traditional coursework, students need skills to flourish professionally, such as effective communication and personal interactions, leadership experience, presenting scholarly work in professional meetings and journals, research experiences and outreach services. Through its members, advisers, chapters and leadership, SPS enables national initiatives and local impacts within the community. Locally, regionally, nationally and internationally, the SPS offers the opportunity for these important enrichments to the student’s experience.
How can I join?
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in physics. Members' majors include physics, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, medicine, biochemistry, data science and related fields.
The Jewell chapter of the Society of Physics Students (SPS) was recognized with the 2016-2017 Outstanding Chapter Award by the SPS National Office in Washington, D.C. Chapter awards are based on contributions made to scholarship and service on local, regional and national levels.
