Girl power in physics
Tomorrow
(Friday, March 25), two labs in the SFU physics department at the Burnaby Campus (P8445.2 & P9412) will be bubbling with high school girls’ laughter and experiments.  Sarah Johnson, an SFU physics lecturer, is also bubbling with enthusiasm about Girls Exploring Physics, the department’s second annual workshop aimed at sparking grades 9 and 10 girls’ interest in physics. Johnson can talk about the goals of the workshop, where the 48 registrants are from and what they’ll be cooking up tomorrow.
