Girls Exploring Physics

March 17, 2015

Girls Exploring Physics is a free workshop for girls in grades 9 and 10 held at the SFU Burnaby campus. This half-day workshop includes two hands-on activities in physics. There will also be a discussion of career opportunities available to students who study physics at the university level. While enjoying a complementary lunch, participants will have a chance to interact informally with female physics faculty and students from SFU.

The workshop will take place in the Trottier Studio for Innovative Science Education (C9051)

If you are just being dropped off or parking for a short time, the best place to park is the VB visitors lot on the east side of campus near the Cornerstone Building. From the VB lot, you will have to walk through the Applied Sciences Building into the Academic Quadrangle (AQ) and then turn left at Chemistry. There will be signs posted.

If you need to park for the whole day then you should park in the Visitors Parkade near the West Mall Centre and we will supply you with a parking pass at the end of the day. Please send an email to if you need such a pass. Here is a map of the SFU parking lots: Parking Map
