IN THIS NEWSLETTER: Can you believe that it is the end of the year again? But the good news is that our Annual Faraday Show will be on Saturday, December 11! Join us and the UBC Chemistry Outreach Program to celebrate the International Year of Chemistry. The Welcome Orientation for Women (WOW) on January 5 is an one-day session for female students in grades 11, 12, or first year university who are interested in physics & astronomy. This is a great opportunity for students to chat with professors in the department, interact with speakers and students, check out the university, and learn about options in physics & astronomy (Did we mention free lunch and the awesome hands-on robot activity?). For teachers across the country, remember to save the date - the National Michael Smith Challenge is happening on February 28, 2012. Registration will open in Jan 2012, but you can get your students to start preparing by checking out past exams on our website. Finally, we are looking for your help with the Experience Science @ UBC event. Your help will provide many children an opportunity to visit the campus to participate in hands-on science activities!
