“We are strong believers that science is for everyone, not just those studying or teaching it at universities,” says Associate Chair for Physics Programs Rajib Ganguly, Ph.D. “It is fascinating that we are able to understand much of why the universe behaves as it does, and we want to share that wonder with people of all ages in the community.”
