Women in Physics

Purpose:

The University of Wisconsin - La Crosse Women In Physics formed in Spring 2004 with the following goals:

  1. To act as a support system for the minority of women in Physics.
  2.  To aid in the bringing of female Physicists/Engineers to Physics Seminar, as well as having extra opportunities to speak with her during the club meeting
  3. To encourage younger girls to consider sciences, in particular Physics.
